Last month (May) in Red Hat Eclipse

May is not the most exciting month in terms of Eclipse development - it's all about final touches, release procedures and handing these bits to the users. With the previous said it might actually be the most exciting from users point of view.
The team spent a lot of time on getting things from Luna release train built and available in Fedora Rawhide (future Fedora 21 release) - Platform, CDT, Linux Tools, Mylyn and their dependencies are available to Rawhide users now.

Here is the detailed report:
  • P2 - Use runnable repo to collect metadata (commit)
  • P2 - Propose improvements to fragments generation (review)
  • Review, approve, push stabilizing patches (bugs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
PTP Remote
  • Drop circular dependency with CDT (commit)
Linux Tools
  • GCov coverage bars change to green/red (review)
  • GCov add compile/link flags automatically (review)
  • SystemTap - many cleanups, remote operations improvement, context sensitive UI elements and user guide improvements (git log)
Test and celebrate with us the soon to be available Luna release train.
