Version 1.7.9 Released

Craig Setera — March 30, 2008 @ 3:42 pm — New Releases

Version 1.7.9 of EclipseME has been released. This version provides a single bug fix for a build issue causing users trouble in recent EclipseME versions. This version still supports Eclipse 3.2. Future versions will likely require newer versions of Eclipse in order to function.

The Eclipse Mobile Tools for Java project is in the process of restarting. Motorola has taken leadership and the current plan for the project is to restart using EclipseME as the initial code, building on what is currently available in EclipseME. Assuming that the project is successfully restarted with the EclipseME code, the EclipseME project will eventually fade away. We will work hard to make the transition from EclipseME to MTJ as painless as possible. Watch this space for further information over the next couple of months.

In order to use the preprocessing support, it is absolutely necessary that the new installation instructions be followed in order to enable the preprocessing support.

EclipseME requires at least version 3.2 of the Eclipse platform.

Refer to the installation instructions at http://eclipseme.org/docs/installation.html. EclipseME may be installed and updated via the EclipseME Update site as well as via an Eclipse site archive file downloadable from Sourceforge. Point Eclipse at http://eclipseme.org/updates/ to install via the update site. If you encounter issues with EclipseME, please visit http://eclipseme.org/docs/support.html for more information on support options.

This new version includes the following changes:


  • None

Bug Fixes

  • Fix for file locks deletion errors during build (Bug 1925613)

    I checked that new version and it looks that everything is fine with following package builds. Thanks a lot for this correction! And I’m glad EclipseME will be a base for MTJ.

    Thank you for all your work done so far.
    Hopefully Motorola has gained a bit vision to not
    make a Windows only transition of your code but
    including Linux and such as a primary platform.

    I have downloaded eclipse-SDK-3.3.2-Win32.zip, and want to download eclipseme1.7.9. But there are 2 sites viz. eclipseme.feature_1.7.9_site.zip and eclipseme.feature_1.7.9.src.zip; now my question is which site is suitable for me?.zip or source.zip? and one more 3791629 and 3088098 bytes means how many megabytes?

    Best regards,

  12. Craig Setera Says:

    The src.zip contains the source code for use in developing EclipseME.
