The following are new features that are available in PTP 9.0, Photran 9.1, and Remote 2.0. (see bottom of page for even more recent info)
The Eclipse package all-in-one download "Eclipse for Parallel Application Developers" is updated with the latest Mars release contents of most interest to our users. You can download it at http://eclipse.org/downloads
The Terminal View has been ported to use the new TM Terminal 4.0. This will provide better integration and long term support for accessing remote systems.
Synchronized Project Wizard
The new project wizard has been enhanced so that the remote directory will not be reset if it has already been entered. This improves the project creation workflow.
Synchronized Project Error Messages
If the remote repository is locked for some reason, an error message will be displayed indicating how the problem can be solved.
Remote connection information is now shown in a view in addition to the Remote Connections preference page. This allows connections to be manipulated without requiring a model dialog.
Remote Console Support
Remote connections are now supported in the Console view. This provides a uniform way to interact with consoles, as well as providing VT100 emulation.
