For all of you DoD people out there, when DoD hears EOL, they immediately ask to have the EOL'ed SW/HW upgraded so it's fully supported. Since Eclipse RCP is really not a purchased and supported licensed product, is EOL really an issue? Since there are new versions of Eclipse coming out yearly, previous releases are not really supported at all anyways.

Just trying to get a feel for what others are thinking or what Eclipse's opinion about this is.

Thanks for listening,

Mike Kennedy

This statement is NOT correct. There is the so called LongTermSupport
which is provided by some of the Eclipse.org member companies.
