Hi,

A preview of the new Buckminster for Eclipse 3.7 has been published to our update sites at:

http://download.eclipse.org/tools/buckminster/updates-3.7
http://download.eclipse.org/tools/buckminster/headless-3.7
http://download.cloudsmith.com/buckminster/external-3.7

The most significant enhancement so far is the support for "Shared licenses between features". Kim Moir wrote a good
introduction to this in her blog:

http://relengofthenerds.blogspot.com/2011/01/implementing-sh ared-licenses-with-37m5.html

(you can of course skip her #3 about updating map files etc. The license feature is resolved just like any other feature
using your rmap)

Buckminster will automatically recognize the shared license and add a dependency to it so that it resolves correctly.
The feature.jar and source.feature.jar actions will make all the needed replacements. In short, aside from updating your
features, you don't need to do anything with your build system to make this work.

The Buckminster bugzilla for this improvement is https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=336141

Regards,
Thomas Hallgren

I would like to update the JSON file for the hudson/jenkins plugin so
people can automatically install the new version in hudson.
Unfortunately those locations are not usable with a browser. Could you
let me know which features should be installed by default from
eclipse.org and cloudsmith.com?

Thanks and best regards,
Johannes

What do you mean not usable? The URL's above are repository URL's and p2 can use them :-) If you append '/content.jar'
to them, you will see the meta-data.

True enough, but the 4000 lines of a content.xml are a little harder to
consume than browsing the 'features' directory :)

But anyway, which features should be the default configuration?
All the features listed on eclipse.org?
What about cloudsmith.com? Should the default SVN team provider be
subclipse again, or is subversive the more stable one now? Any other
features from cloudsmith.com?

Thanks again,
Johannes

Hi Johannes,

I think you should use the exact same features as in 3.6.

Alright, thank you, I will do that.

the new version 3.7 is still not available for installation from the
hudson/jenkins plugin... I had to use the json found here
