    Hi everyone,

    I have epic working quite well (except for debugging) in M8.  I hear a lot of "Eclipse 3 should work but is unsupported, officially we only support 2.1"  Which is perfectly fair for a small volunteer project and I am extremly thankful for it's existence at all, let alone a pretty vibrant support community.

    However.

    The eclipse roadmap lists API freezing back in December:
    # Friday November 21, 2003 - Milestone 5 (3.0 M5) - initial API freeze for breaking changes - stable build reflecting progress
    # Friday December 19, 2003 - Milestone 6 (3.0 M6) - API freeze for breaking changes - stable build with focus on reducing the bug backlog and fixing memory leaks
    # Friday February 13, 2004 - Milestone 7 (3.0 M7) - stable build reflecting progress
    # Friday March 26, 2004 - Milestone 8 (3.0 M8) - stable build reflecting progress
    # Friday May 21, 2004 - Milestone 9 (3.0 M9) - stable build - feature complete - development freeze - lock down and testing beg

    So, since obviously coding is ongoing to work with E3, is there a road map (however tenuous) that might list your intentions wrt officially supporting E3?

    Cheers,
    Pacanukeha

    PS.  Thanks again.

      Hi,

      when Eclipse 3.0 is out (30th of June) we will try to support it with minimal delay (should not take longer than a week).
      After EPIC has been ported to 3.0 support for 2.1.x will be discontinued.

      Bye
      Jochen
