List of bug fixes and enhancements in 0.21.0-SNAPSHOT

Tycho Runtime

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


  • Use JDT compiler from Luna which is Java 8 enabled (bug 430986)


  • If you use Java 7 or higher, symbolic links in product tar archives are now preserved as links in the archive instead of inlined.
    This is mostly useful for MacOS distros which use a symbolic link to the launcher binary or generally if you create symbolic links for root files. See bug 429809
  • 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)
