#34 Move "GCC Built-in Compiler Settings" storage place

Next Release

The problem is: .settings/language.settings.xml gets stored as project file. It contains env-hash which is OS dependent. I check in this file in VCS, then my colleague opens project in Windows and env-hash gets changed.
Though this file contains default setting. Is it possible to make it use global value by default (move out from project)?


  • the file .settings/language.settings.xml is used by CDT and is not under plug-in control, so to change something related to it requires patching CDT.

    Eclipse 4.3 SR2 is to be released soon, if a patch is possible, it should be done to 4.3.2.

    until then, as a workaround, do not save language.settings.xml in your VCS.
