To: cross-project-issues-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx


as announced with Luna (here) we have removed the Eclipse 2.0 runtime-level compatibility support (was deprecated since 2004). This means that, starting with Eclipse Neon, plugins using Eclipse 2.x compatibility bundles will not be working anymore. The details are on bug 394739. The clean-up is still in progress. If you have a specific question on how to migrate etc. feel free to ask (the sooner the better).

The javadocs of the removed methods and API provide hints on how to port the code to the OSGi-style bundles. There is also discussion going on the deprecated o.e.core.runtime.Platform methods and its related deprecated classes (IPluginRegistry etc.) which, even though still available as deprecated, will be no-ops as they need the compatibility layer. The process to remove them was started and the announcement of API removal is in bug 475944. Feel free to give constructive opinions there also.
