New and Noteworthy

Improvements

  • It is now possible to generate source features with proper label, description, and other attributes. See bug 374349 for details. It's recommended to rely on feature.properties to set name and other text values in feature; then you can easily customize the generated source feature by creating a sourceTemplateFeature/feature.properties file setting the same keys, with more convenient values.

Fixes

  • p2 repository and proxy authentication now works with maven-encrypted passwords (bug 386910 and bug 394023)
