Hi everybody,

in Version 3.5.1 it was possible to set a useragent string for http connections which was quite helpful to access update-sites when sitting behind a proxy. To do this one had to call eclipse.exe with the option -Dhttp.useragent="Firefox/3.0.16".
Since Version 3.5.2 this feature doesn't work anymore. Also version 3.6.0 doesn't use this option. Is there a reason for this behaviour?

Regards,

Vant
