The inline rename
crashes reliably in the following scenario:
In Project Explorer
press 'F2' to start inline renaming and press 'Enter'. Now switch focus
to an editor after successful rename. For some editors it won't crash,
but switching focus back to Project Explorer leads to a crash.
This means any
Windows 10 user that tries to rename a file which supports inline rename
will get a crash. This is a blocker.
The Eclipse PMC
decided to remove the feature as it also has a very bad user experience.
We delivered the fix and will do a respin of Platform/SDK build shortly.
We do not see any user friendly alternative to respin the train repo and
the EPPs. Hopefully we can still do this on time for the release on Wednesday.

The changes are
not small and we're past RC2 and supposed to ship next week. I'm currently
tending to not revert.
PMC members, please

At least on my Windows 10 computer, the Java VM crashes (immediately or
after a delay) when using the new inline rename feature (F2) in the Project Explorer. Changes of files that have not yet been saved will be
I've tested it on two more computers. On another Windows 7 computer with
the same Eclipse IDE and JRE it did not crash, but on another Windows 10
computer it did. The issue seems to occur on Windows 10 independent of
the CPU/GPU, of the Java VM and of the IDE package.
