New Help for Old Friends V
This page to to collect miscellaneous notes and pointers to changes coming up in the WTP 3.2 release. Its purpose it to be a central "jumping off" point for those adopters of WTP 3.1 that are moving to WTP 3.2. 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 is a good place). Web Tools is a Platform and we strive to provide compatible API evolution with clear migration instructions, etc., for the future.
One thing we have learned in the past is that some adopters do not move with us to every new release. Some early adopters went from 0.7 directly to 1.5, for example. Unfortunately, it is difficult to present the information in that way, covering perhaps multiple changes across different version ranges.
Note: as these notes develop and grow in number, they may occasionally be re-organized into categories, etc.
218438 The org.eclipse.wst.common.ui.provisional.editors workaround package has been removed. Its classes offered a workaround to a post selection firing problem that has long since been fixed in the Eclipse Platform.
