Re: [emf-dev] EMF Compare major version bump

Well... I've been convinced that changing our BREEs to Java 6 does not provide much value (and I wasn't allowed to change them to Java 7 :p), so I've reverted this change and the major version bumps it triggerred.

The features of EMF Compare still change to 3.0 (the UI has been revamped enough to break the user's workflow... and suffered a few API breaks in the process), but the core plugins remain at their earlier major version.

Feel free to ask here or on the forum if something is not clear and you can't find the versions you need.

Just a quick note to let you know that we have now bumped the major version segment of EMF Compare plugins and features. We plan on releasing 3.0 to Luna and this change will make its way into M6.

There are very few API breakages in this version (see the very raw list on Note that there is a chace we simply haven't searched for replacement for some of the APIs. If you needed one of them, please let us know.). Still, we used this opportunity to change all of our BREEs to JDK 6. We do not use Java 6-specific features yet... but with the BREE out of the way we will not hesitate to do so in the future.

Note that we still plan on opening new APIs (releasing some of our 'internal' classes into the open); other than that we should be done with the API breaks with these first nightlies of the M6 bits.

For anyone wishing to check the compatibility, nightly builds are aggregated to every day. We're also here to answer if we broke something unexpected.
