Re: [tycho-user] tycho-pack200 version 2.4.0 missing?



Java 16 removes the pack200 code so it's time for tycho to deprecate for removal all pack200 using code.


The distribution of *jar.pack.gz as well as *.jar is no longer encouraged, rather it is deprecated. Eliminating all pack200 functionality from pom.xml makes it a little simpler and saves significantly on the download zip sizes. We can also wave goodbye to the Java 6/7/8 pack incompatibilities.

Hi all,

is there a specific reason why org.eclipse.tycho.extras:tycho-pack200 is still on version 2.3.0 at maven central ?

Overview of the available versions:

In my builds I get this error:

Error: Plugin org.eclipse.tycho.extras:tycho-pack200a-plugin:2.4.0 or one of its dependencies could not be resolved: Failure to find org.eclipse.tycho.extras:tycho-pack200a-plugin:jar:2.4.0 in was cached in the local repository, resolution will not be reattempted until the update interval of central has elapsed or updates are forced -> [Help 1]

Thanks for your assistance,
