Re: [cdt-dev] Scanner Discovery API and versioning of cdt.core

Did any plugin get a major version bump yet? If there are no API changes, I’d prefer to leave it at 8.1. It would be nice to send a message we are finally taking care of our APIs so that extenders can do so without worrying of breakage from release to release.


I also prefer to name the CDT releases by their train. The next one is CDT Juno. Which I guess is why I haven’t fussed about the number.

There are 2 interfaces that were changed in cdt.core and that cause breaking API changes as reported by API tooling. Both interfaces are presumable of internal kind but not marked currently as such:

- org.eclipse.cdt.core.settings.model.ICDescriptionDelta

- org.eclipse.cdt.core.settings.model.ICSettingEntry


I marked both as @noextend/@noimplement which is breaking by itself.


ICDescriptionDelta is to create a delta for event notification which is done internally in the model. I do not believe users should be allowed to implement it.

I am less convinced about ICSettingEntry but we had some discussion about it earlier and James was of the opinion that it should be marked as internal. I would concur unless somebody provide a good reason for extending.


So, on sd90 branch I marked them as @noextend/@noimplement and added to API filters which allowes not to increase the major version of cdt.core. Would it be appropriate to do in this case?


This also brings up a question what is the next version of CDT itself, is it CDT 9.0 or CDT 8.1 ?


+1 for 9.0. The changes (not the API, but the scanner discovery in general) are large enough to warrant a new major version.
