Maybe I've worked it out while writing it, but since it took me > 1 hour research, it would be nice if someone can confirm it. |
I would like to upgrade from Eclipse 4.4M3 to 4.4M5, available from the Eclipse Project download page 6 days ago. (Incidentally, due to the New and Noteworthy - I would like to test bug 426556.)
I would have thought that [Help -> Check for updates] would do the trick. However from browsing the dates of the plugins that will update, it seems to be offering me Eclipse 4.4M4. I'm using this update URL: http://download.eclipse.org/releases/luna which according to https://wiki.eclipse.org/Luna/Simultaneous_Release_Plan seems to be the right one:
"It contains the latest milestone, release candidate, eventually the release itself, and then eventually service releases. "
Q: Is there a time-lag before this URL gets the update published?
UPDATE: I found the date 31-Jan on the following page, so I guess the answer is "yes, about ~1 week"
Note that if I use the following URL I can pick the M5 milestone:
But then automatic-updates just shows the Eclipse SDK, but not many other packages I'd also like to update. (E.g. it's not clear to me whether the changes I'd like to test are in Eclipse SDK or elsewhere.)
I suppose, piecing it together, that the Eclipse Project download page is really just for the Eclipse SDK, and the other features won't be published until 31-Jan: therefore I should just be patient and wait 2 more days. Correct?
