|[wtp-dev] Committers can still get Graphiti, even on release day!|
First, congratulations on WTP 3.4.0! We went live with the rest of Juno at 9 am EDT today! However, when I tried to piece together the final release, I ran into an issue that I just found a workaround for, and so I wanted to share it with other committers:
Graphiti is not mirrored. If a normal person tries to download the Graphiti zip file today, they will have to wait hours to get it to download, most likely resulting in a timeout.
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=376732 was recently issued to allow committers to get around this issue. The following has been added to the download page of files that are *NOT* mirrored (like Graphiti):
There are no mirrors for this file. Eclipse Committers can log in for faster download.
So, I tried it. I logged in, and the file was downloaded quickly! (Before I logged in, it said it would take more than 3 hours, with a transfer rate around 200 bytes per second.)
Simply put, I encourage all of you to download the Juno release- be it the Java EE EPP or Eclipse 3.8 + the various pieces, and make sure that everything is working as expected. And once again, thanks for all of your time and effort in making WTP 3.4.0 a successful release!
