Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Fw: SimRel 2019-09 RC2 crashes on Windows 10 on inline rename in the Project Explorer

Hi Holger

Please post on eclipse-pmc. That's where the decision happens. I will respond there.

Hi Dani,

This is bad news because many Eclipse users have Windows 10 and renaming
files is a basic feature.

How big would be the change only to disable inline renaming instead of
to revert the corresponding code changes and display the old, still
existing dialog? Also the renaming of Java files inside the source
folder is currently not done inline, but in a dialog.

If we deliver Eclipse with this known issue, then Windows 10 users
should be warned (e.g. on the download page) that inline renaming (in
the Project Explorer and in the Navigator) in many (or most?) cases
causes a crash and unsaved changes will be irreversibly lost.

In 2019-09 (4.13) RC2 also hiding/showing the Git History Find Toolbar
causes reproducible crashes on Windows 10.

Thanks,

Holger
