Update to Eclipse Neon. See the upstream new & noteworthy document for the full list of changes: https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/news/4.6/


Additionally, Eclipse now uses Webkit 2 by default in Fedora for increased stability and security. Webkit 1 can still be used by setting SWT_WEBKIT2=0 in the environment.


Enables "discovery" modules of Eclipse Communication Framework.


Fix the Eclipse PDE Target Platform droplet bundle detection.

Before this change, any bundle from a droplet location (most bundles now) would not show up as part of the default target platform (generated from existing eclipse rpm bundles). This should be fixed now, and bundles within droplets should show up as part of the PDE target platform.

If already using a PDE target platform, it may be necessary to re-generate it from the 'default' option to see the changes.

I installed F24 alpha two days agora. At that time I installed the "Fedora Eclipse" group. Today, I got this update from updates-testing. After the update, I cannot get Eclipse to start a fresh workspace. It generates a .log file in the .metadata directory of the target workspace with many errors. Please advise.

@pedrolamarao: Thanks for testing. It's hard to say without seeing the log. Can you file a bug on component "eclipse" and attach it? That way I can inspect it.

Fails to start, even with a fresh workspace, -clean and ~/.eclipse deleted.

See bug #1333480 for details (as above)

Still running into #1333480, other than that eclipse is working fine.

Bug 1333480 still happens for me.

User Icon mbooth commented & provided feedback 3 years ago

Clearly it does not affect everyone. I will push the update since pre-release Fedora has updates-testing enabled by default anyway. Let's continue working the problem in the bug.
