List of bug fixes and enhancements in 0.18.0

New and Noteworthy

This is mostly a bug-fix release in time for the Eclipse Kepler release train.

Target Platform & Dependency Resolution

  • Include new Kepler pre-RC3 version of p2. In particular, this includes fixes for p2 bugs 409051, 406902, 408691, 406960, 406942
  • (INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE) The build now fails if a p2 repository is referenced that has installable units from an old-style update site. These so-called "partial IUs" cannot be used for dependency resolution and used to be silently dropped from the target platform. This often lead to strange resolution problems (bug 380438, question on stackoverflow). Now the build fails with a clear error message.

Packaging

  • Added experimental support for bundled Mac OS X applications (bugs 378021, 407676)
    Please note that you have to apply a workaround if you want to use this new p2 feature
  • Several source bundle/feature generation fixes/enhancements
    • bin.includes from license features now taken over into generated source features (Bug 403950)
    • Source feature branding bundle can now be configured (Bug 407706)
    • Source feature.xml now has line-breaks, indentation and an XML declaration (Bug 408168)
    • Allow to include non-root content in source bundle (Bug 407172)

Other

  • Stricter and OSGi-specific MANIFEST syntax validation yielding better error messages (Bug 383192)
