Hi Folks,

As you may already know, the Eclipse Milestone 6 (M6) just happened
today (Monday). A major part of this milestone was the inclusion of the
the p2 project code (the new Eclipse install/update mechanism). ECF
has/is supporting the p2 project, and consequently there are now 4 ECF
plugins that are included in Eclipse Platform:

org.eclipse.ecf
org.eclipse.ecf.identity
org.eclipse.ecf.filetransfer
org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer

One unintended consequence of p2, is that with these four ECF bundles in
the platform, the existing ECF update site will not work (with M6+).
The reason for this is that because the four ECF bundles listed above
are in the SDK, they are considered part of the platform by p2, and so
update sites (including ours) are not allowed (by p2 policy) to update
platform bundles. So if you try to install even a more recent version
of ECF on M6, it won't let these four bundles be installed.

As a workaround, Ted Kubaska and I have added to the ECF build to
produce an update site specifically for Eclipse M6/p2 that removes these
four ECF bundles from the ECF core feature(since they are already in the
M6 platform). As soon as we can (probably sometime Tuesday) we will
make this update site available on the ECF download page, along with the
update site for Eclipse 3.3->3.4M5. That way, people that are using
Eclipse 3.3 or 3.4 up to M5 can get/run ECF via the existing update
site, and those running 3.4M6 can get the other parts of ECF.

So an update site for 3.4M6 will be available on the download page
tomorrow, Tuesday, April 1.

Also, ECF's own M6 will be available one week from today, Monday April
7th, as ECF's M6 occurs one week (+1) after platform.

Thanks.

Scott

Hi Folks,

There is now an ECF update site for Eclipse 3.4M6 available from the ECF
downloads page:

http://www.eclipse.org/ecf/downloads.php#2.0.0M6

Thanks to committer Ted Kubaska for help with getting a new ECF build in
place to create the M6 update site.

ECF milestone 6 will be next Monday (4/7), and at that time both the
update site contents for the latest integration build (currently
2.0.0M5d), and the Eclipse M6 update site will be refreshed with ECF M6.

Thanks,

Scott
