Saros - Distributed Party Programming for Eclipse
The Saros Team is proud to announce the release of version 12.9.28. This release brings you a couple of cool new features.
* Session participants are now informed when one is looking at a non-shared file.
Especially followers now know that the Follow Mode is just "paused" and still active.
* Add an icon to the SarosView to open the preferences and remove the rarely used Chat Beep toggle icon from the Saros View toolbar.
* The left viewport annotation is not displayed by default anymore, because it was confusing for users.
It can be re-enabled in the Eclipse Preferences: General > Editors > Text Editors > Annotations
Additionally, you will find many minor usability fixes. Check out the changelog below for more information.
This release is compatible with the following previous versions:
* Saros 12.9.28
* Saros 12.7.27
* Saros 12.7.6
