This page to to collect miscellaneous notes and pointers to changes coming up in the WTP 3.1 (Galileo) release. Its purpose it to be a central "jump off" point for those adopters of WTP 3.0 that are moving to WTP 3.1. Most of this information may be already contained in various mailing lists and bugzilla reports, but it is believed best to have a central place to get people started.

Adopters: if you run into trouble or notice things that are not covered here, please let us know (wtp-dev@eclipse.org is a good place). This will not only help us keep these notes up to date, but will help us better learn, over time, the discipline of "platform development" and help make sure we learn to provide compatible API's, migration instructions, etc., in the future. It isn't always easy, but our intent is to make it as simple and painless as possible for adopters to use WTP as a true platform.

One thing we've learned in the past is that some don't adopt every version ... some early adopters went from 0.7 directly to 1.5, for example. Unfortunately, it's hard for us to present the information in that way, covering perhaps multiple changes, but hopefully as we develop these for each release, they will all flow together to aide adopters.

Note: as these notes develop and grow in number, they may occasionally be re-organized into categories, etc.


Common Components

The Faceted Project framework needed to increment the minor version in the 3.1 code stream to reflect the changes that happened in that code.

Bundle Version change
org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.core 1.3.100 -> 1.4.0
