Supported platform versions
Since 3.7, PDT no longer keeps minimum API requirement with Eclipse 3.8!
Minimum platform version is set in sync with simultaneous Eclipse releases:
- For yearly and first update (*.1) Eclipse release - with previous release (for example Eclipse Foundation release Mars or Mars.1, PDT keep API compatibility with Luna 4.4.*)
- For next update releases (*.2, *.3) - with current main release (for example since Mars.2 PDT committers are able to use new apis from Mars.0)
Hudson jobs respect this policy:
- pdt-master - Run with minimum supported platform
- eclipse-next - Run with higher platform
Minimum Java runtime (BREE)
PDT keeps minimum java requirement with currently supported eclipse platform. Examples:
- Luna - Java 1.6
- Mars - Java 1.7
- Neon - Java 1.8
