Re: [tycho-dev] Tycho 3.0 release

My reason for Java 17 is based on the pain once we had to use Java 11 to uncover that so many things were broken and almost no one tested that it literally costed me more than a month to get things in working order. At that point I made up my mind that the burden shouldn't be mine only :) . What would be a good channel to get some poll on the topic and decide based on it for now? Although any delay longer than till end of year would put us in same bad situation with Java 17 as with Java 11 back then IMHO.

burden we put on consumers of tycho.

The real pitfalls are currently

and I would rather invest time there than some of these fancy Java 17
stuff (you can call me oldshcol in that regard) and I really don't want
to loose users that currently help us test new version regular just
because they are mad about being forced to upgrade their builds just for
a little convince...
