The tycho-internals are not considered public-api, if a plugin extends
tycho, it has to declare a given version according to the
maven-versioning rules and will always fetch its compatible tycho version.
If you override that in your pom (e.g. forcing maven to use a never
version) you are mostly doing that on your own risk.

See  for the version policy, in general we consider only things that
affecting Tycho users at the pom/tool level a breaking change. The
rationale is, that users actually don't care if the *internals* change,
e.g you won't notice that move of BuildProperties and it does not add
any value, so why should you upgrade to a never version?
And in this particular case the outcome would be the same: You would
have to stay at Tycho 2.5.0 or update the plugin that depends on Tycho

I tried to update to Tycho 2.7.0. We are using

With 2.7.0 the build fails with the following exception:

There is no newer version of that plugin. So obviously the only solution
is either to not update to 2.7.0 or to disable the plugin.
I’m just wondering, is that class really removed or moved? And isn’t
that a breaking change that would have forced to update the MAJOR part
of the Tycho version and not just the MINOR part?
