|Re: [ide-dev] Dropping the release names (Neon, Oxygen) from user downloads|
I would prefer a "real" date. Let's assume we release June, August and April we would have:
This reflects IMHO more the idea that "service" releases have been replaced with releases which can provide new functionality.
@Andrey, the release names are not decided by the top-level Eclipse PMC, I think the planning consil is responsible for that.
May I suggest dropping the "20" and just go with a 2-digit year?Eclipse 16.0Eclipse 16.1Eclipse 16.2Eclipse 17.0Eclipse 17.1Eclipse 17.2Eclipse 18.0Eclipse 18.1Eclipse 18.2IMHO, the 20 is unnecessary and adds clutter. I also think the year scheme feels dated. Yes, I do not worry about the year 2100. :)-GunnarOn 28 Apr 2016, at 15:33, Tracy Miranda <tracy@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:Hi all,In thinking about the Eclipse IDE more as a product, I want to toss up the suggestion of dropping the release names i.e Neon, Oxygen from anything user facing i.e. download site, etc.I wrote up these thoughts in a post https://kichwacoders.com/2016/04/28/why-its-time-to-kill-the-eclipse-release-namesneon-oxygen-etc/The summary is that they unnecessarily add confusion for anyone not intimately familiar with Eclipse. I suggest replacing the releases simply with the year they go out. Perhaps with some convention for intermediate releases.Thoughts?Regards,Tracy
