Re: [eclipse-dev] New unused method/type/ctor/field diagnostics from Java compiler.

I would reiterate this alert and encourage committers to make sure that they build all their plug-in  projects using last weeks I-build, including those which you have not modified in the last week. I ran into three of these errors myself today when I was preparing to tag my projects for the integration build. They were trivial to fix.

Subject: [eclipse-dev] New unused method/type/ctor/field diagnostics from        Java compiler.

Hello !

       With the recent resolution of the following defects:
 ([compiler] Unused public members of private classes not flagged)  (Wrong 'unused' problem reported) (Compiler fails to warn on unused constructors of private classes)

you may begin to see new unused entity diagnostics from the Eclipse Java compiler if your private classes contains unused methods, types,

fields or constructors.  The first two fixes are available from Build ID I20090217-2200 and the final one will become available from the next
integration build.

       For projects which are configured so that an unused code diagnostics would result in an error, this would mean a build breakage

once you upgrade to the build with the fix (should your projects have unused code). Hence the advance alert.
