Re: [cdt-dev] Is an API Baseline update to Neon.3 ok?

Hi Liviu, 

None of the Deprecated code in CDT will be removed anytime soon. Not before CDT 10.0, which is a long way off (in fact there is no major version bump planned in CDT.)

The Platform has a similar long retention policy on Deprecated code. The minimum is they keep the code for 2 years after announcing intention to delete the code. And deprecating code in itself ia not an intention to delete the code, but rather an indication that there is a newer/better way to do something.

I just updated my development environment to Eclipse Neon.3, and reconfigured the project build to 9.2.1 API Baseline, with Java 1.8.

The good news is that the builds passed, both the maven repositories build, and the internal Eclipse build, for debug.

The bad news is that I have 190 deprecation warnings... :-(

looks like I'll have some very boring next few days...
