- For those who wondered why they received perhaps lots of mail notifications
from this forum a few days ago: those were signs of the re-birth of this forum
after build.eclipse.org had died. Thanks to the Eclipse admins everything is
back operational. After that spam flood, however, this post is real:
This is almost routine by now: another Eclipse release is available and so
we also pushed another OTDT release out the door, and we call it: 0.7.1.
Although this is a mere service release there are still a few new &
One issue was special fun to implement: reverting our home grown
type hierarchy and adapting the original JDT type hierarchy instead.
(see also this blog entry).
Not only did this improve functionality and maintainability in one swoop,
but it also served as a motor for pushing the limits of OT/J and the OTDT,
like binding roles to base interfaces, and many feature combinations
that weren't thought of before.
At the time of the release bugzilla shows almost as many recently fixed
bugs as there are bugs remaining open.
Even p2 starts being my friend: I changed the object teams p2 repository
into a composite repository, to provide access also to some pre-requisites
like BCEL, ASM and also some Helios components that are not part of every
package. This may cause initial lookup of the repository's content to take
more time, but it makes sure everybody can uncheck "Contact all update
sites during install to find required software" for the installation proper.
Bundles are even packed on the server to reduce download times.
So that's it for today, let the download servers glow
