Hello Xtext Users,

Which Eclipse Version do you use (if you use the latest version of Xtext)? We currently support back to Luna and like to know which Versions are still relevant and which are not


Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?

I have a customer who is still on Luna, but also with an older Xtext version. They plan an Xtext and Eclipse update at once.
Besides that the usual target platforms I am facing are Oxygen and Photon.

I try to support as many platforms as possible, but reality gets in the way. Platform migration to Java 8 makes new code on old platforms less viable. JDT 6/7 annotations make source migration hard.

But more relevantly, I think you are mistaken in claiming support for Xtext >=2.8 generation on an Xtext <2.8 run-time since the breaking change that added setFirstSetPredicated in Xtext.ecore made *.xtextbin unloadable forcing me to eliminate use of *.xtextbin for my editors. I now use
to provide (faster) direct Java-loadable replacements for 10 different *.xtextbin files.
