Re: [cdt-dev] CDT4.0RC3 - why only available as update sitefrom d ownload page?


I have looked at the cdt-master update site zip; thats why I posted earlier. I've tried to describe my workflow and concern about this change; perhaps unsuccessfully.

It's clear that you are "done" with this issue. Apologies for taking your time.
Nonetheless thanks for your reply.

I strongly urge you, Robert, and anyone who has similar issues with the new builds to please take a look at the contents of the zip file. They are the same jar files you get with the old zip files. Only they are all merged into one. As well, the core.win32 jar is left as a jar and needs to be extracted
so that we can get at the starter.exe. (jars are zip files, BTW).

It shouldn't be rocket science to write a script that extracts what you need from it. And as I mentioned feel free to contribute any scripts you write
back to the community.

The benefits of the change are immense. The jars are now signed. We save 400 MB of disk per build. And besides, I have spend enough time on releng for a while. If anyone wants to take over responsibility for releng, they can have
at it.
