|[cross-project-issues-dev] FW: Changing Eclipse BIRT Indigo Version Number to BIRT 3.7|
BIRT project is planning to change the main release number from 4.0 to 3.7 for Indigo release.
Considering that the Indigo M5 is quite close, we will not make this change for M5.
The changes will include feature version change and plugin version change, which might affect download stream projects.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
For the BIRT project’s Indigo release in June of this year, our plan continues to be to match the BIRT version number with the Eclipse Platform version number used for Indigo. Going forward, this will make it easier for everyone to remember which version of BIRT is designed to work with which version of the Platform. And with Indigo being the 8th major release of the BIRT project, there is no downside with updating the release number to match the Platform release.
At the outset of the Indigo project, it was an open question whether Indigo would be Eclipse 3.7 or 4.0 �C so as a short term measure, we adopted BIRT 4.0 as the working release number for BIRT Indigo. Now that the Indigo release will be designated Eclipse 3.7, we plan to update BIRT Indigo to use the BIRT 3.7 designation.
So, consider this a heads-up that in the next week or so you will see the designation of the BIRT release we are working on for June change from BIRT 4.0 to BIRT 3.7.
