I'm just discovered the Eclipse enhancement ticket that adds a new valuable method:

See Bug and Commit for further information.

This will be integrated into org.eclipse.e4.ui.workbench-1.9.0.x. So there comes questions into my mind:

* in which module of efxclipse-rt is the dependency to the eclipse version be defined?
* I found releng/
* there is a property platform.version which is nowhere used and a p2 repository "oxygen.0 pointing to That seems the exclipse version which is bundled, isn't?
* when will that version be part of efxclipse bundled eclipse version?

Right you found the correct place where the upstream version is configured. Our build is done in 2 steps:
* building our target
* builing the platform

Our current upstream target is 2018-09 - we only update immediately to upstream if there are important features we or one of our (paying) customers want/need because of the chances to inherit upstream bugs (we got hit by them multiple times already!).

2018-09 was an important release because of the Java-11 support in equinox. I don't see a reason to update to 2018-12 at the moment and the new feature you are interested in is part of 2019-03 which is post our 3.5 release. . Maybe we'll update to this release with our 3.6 update but I can not promise it will happen as there's risk involved that we'll have to fix problems nobody is paying us for.
