We are preparing our product for migrating to Eclipse Neon (4.6.x) release. I noticed that Eclipse Buckminster download for eclipse-4.6 is not available yet and is impacting our plans to support 4.6.

Any information on when the updated Buckminster will be made available?

Thanks.

For previous Eclipse simultaneous releases, Thomas Hallgren has usually uploaded a matching Buckminster version shortly after the Eclipse release.

Thanks Matthew. Is it possible to get a tenative date for the availability of new vpersion? It will help us to decide if we can support Neon before the next release of our product. Is there a way to send a message to Thomas Hallgren or the Buckminster team directly ?

Hi

Buckminster is unfortunately subject to a vicious circle.

Fewer users => less support.
Less support => fewer users.

You will notice that questions about the Neon release go unanswered and
few Eclipse projects now use Buckminster. Most projects have migrated to
Maven/Tycho. I have recognised that, for my projects, the pain and risk
of not migrating is now greater than the pain and risk of migrating.

You might want to review your position too.

Regards

Ed Willink

Do you have any numbers on that?

Hi

No. Sorry you'll have to do your own research. I have just noticed that
none of my peer projects use Buckminster any more. Issues with
Buckminster in the aggregation build meet with the polite 'respect'
normally reserved for someone who uses Notepad to develop Java programs.
