Complete list of bug fixes and enhancements in 1.1.0

Compiler

  • the JDT compiler shipped with Tycho has been updated to Photon M4
  • Compilation both using Java 9 as well as using Java 8 but compiling against Java 9 ( with useJDK=BREE) is supported now (bug 514471)
  • Changes for useJDK=BREE:
    • Usage of a JRE directory JAVA_HOME/jre in toolchains.xml is still supported but deprecated in favour of simply using JAVA_HOME. In particular, JAVA_HOME is expected by other maven plugins integrated with toolchains.xml
