|Re: [eclipse-dev] Notice that Eclipse Platform plans to no longer provide MD5 and SHA1 checksums for Neon (but still SHA512)|
One problem I’ve seen with sha256 is that I couldn’t find a Windows command-line executable to automatically check the checksums.
There’s a couple of UI tools, but for automation a plain command-line sha256.exe (build from GNU coreutils for example) would be good. And no, I wouldn’t want that to be based on Cygwin.
Does anyone have a pointer where to get such a command-line tool, or working instructions how to build myself ?
All I’ve found so far is cross-build instructions here:
These did work for me but perhaps Eclipse should reference an easier way getting a tool when we switch to sha256 ?

The topic of this note is about the downloads and checksums obtained directly from the the Eclipse Project. It does not involve the checksums from the "select a
mirror" page -- that is controlled by the Eclipse Foundation -- nor any of the packages downloaded from
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads-- also controlled by the Eclipse Foundation. My intuition is that few
"casual users" use our checksums but some adopters or committers might use them in automated scripts or builds.
