Re: [cdt-dev] RCP Debugger for Windows?

As I sent my e-mail it crossed my mind whether we’re actually allowed to just grab it. Any thoughts Mike?

UltraGDB does indeed appear to be a fork of CDT, which means that its source code should be made available under the EPL. The GitHub repository should be updated to make that clear.  

But I agree with Marc. It would be wonderful if this was contributed upstream to Eclipse.

"UltraGDB is born to fix the debugging user experience problem of the upstream Eclipse CDT."

Have you looked at contributing some of the changes UltraGDB implements?  If they fix CDT user-experience problems, they probably would be good for CDT itself.  We can help with contributions you'd like to make.

GNU tool-chains on Windows is very important, as many important software can only be bulid with GNU tool-chains.

We have a product UltraGDB (, which is a fork of Eclipse CDT.
UltraGDB support 6 tool-chains on Windows.
