This page is for consumers of the Ganymede Simultaneous Release. Testers and early adopters should find this page useful.

Early Access

Depending on how close you want to be to the bleeding edge, there are three ways to get Ganymede project updates. Point your Update Manager at one of these sites:

This is usually the most up to date, but you'll need one URL per project.
Projects that have contributed new bits to the Ganymede Build will be here. This aggregates all the per-project individual sites into one place.
Once a milestone, the latest bits in the staging site will be pushed to production.


You can also get early access to Ganymede zip bundles from the EPP download page, or download individual zips from the projects' download pages.

Communication

Eclipse projects have three communication channels: a mailing list for developers, a newsgroup for users, and Bugzilla. Ganymede, although not a "project" per se, will use the same structure:

  • cross-projects-issues-dev [1] - mailing list for developers and releng
  • eclipse.simultaneous-release (TBC) - newsgroup for users
  • bugzilla (new & search) Eclipse Foundation > Community > Cross-Project
