Hi all,

Platform debug contributes new top level "Debug" menu in 4.8 M4,
starting with build I20171118-1500. This menu should be the home for all
debug specific menu entries previously contributed to the "Run" menu [1].

You can see the examples of the new menu here:

Technically, this change introduces new menu path
(org.eclipse.ui.debug/*) with a bunch of groups (with same names as
before) but does not remove the old menu (*) and also
keeps old debug related group definitions.

The change should be backwards compatible because the old debug related
group definitions from* are not moved but copied
under the new path. The only group really *moved* from one menu to
another is the "", but so far we have not
found anyone contributing to it except JDT itself, so it shouldn't be a

We encourage everyone contributing "Debug" menu entries in the 4.8
release to move into the new menu. JDT contributions are already moved.
An example of the changes proposed for other clients is visible at CDT
Gerrit, see [2].

Not directly related to the menus: be aware, that in M4 the Debug
perspective layout is changed too, see [3] and this screenshot:


Kind regards,
Andrey Loskutov
