The Eclipse Packaging Project (EPP) is responsible for creating technology that makes it easier for new users to consume the output of other Eclipse projects and for coordinating the package releases together with the yearly release train. In order to achieve this goal, EPP is active on different levels since the Europa Release 2007:
All EPP releases appear simultaneously with the release train releases (here: Helios).
All packages must be defined and their content must be specified.
EPP creates its packages for Windows 32-bit, Windows 64-bit, Linux 32-bit, Linux 64-bit and Mac OSX. All of the packages require at least a JVM 1.5 because of the software components that are included in the packages.
Source code used and developed within the project needs a JVM 1.5 or higher.
All outputs produced are prepared for internationalization via Babel.
All frameworks and APIs produced with this release are compatible with previous releases
EPP will create and deliver the packages for the next release train. The exact content and the number of packages are subject to change and depend on the community feedback and help.
The dynamic package delivery component provides an extensible framework for, and an exemplary implementation of, a service for dynamically selecting and downloading/installing installable units.
Preview available for Friends-of-Eclipse.
Bug fixes only are planned for this release.
The Marketplace Client will be introduced with this release.
