List of bug fixes and enhancements in 0.21.0-SNAPSHOT

Compiler

  • The embedded JDT compiler has been updated to a version that supports Java 8 (bug 430986)

Packaging

  • If you use Java 7 or higher, symbolic links in product tar archives are now preserved as links in the archive instead of being inlined (bug 429809)
    This is particularly useful for MacOS distributions which create a symbolic link to the launcher binary Eclipse.app/Contents/MacOS/eclipse. Also, it may now be interesting to create symbolic links via root files.
  • Add support for 256x256 BMPs used for product icons on Windows (bug 433971)

Test Execution

  • A regression in Tycho 0.20.0 has been fixed: Environment variables were not inherited to forked test processes (bug 431793)

Other

  • The embedded OSGi runtime used by Tycho during build has been updated to use Equinox and p2 from the Eclipse Luna release (bug 429442)
