8. What's New

Version 1.0.0 released September, 2012. New features include an nmake error parser, auto-enablement of the nmake error parser in the nmake builder definitions, and revamped and updated plugin documentation available in multiple formats. Productization improvements include moving to the Eclipse standard major.minor.service.qualifier plugin version numbering scheme for improved interoperability with the Eclipse p2 provisioning system, plugin signing for improved verification during plugin installation, and updated branding elements. Under the hood, the plugin release builds move to a fully automated, headless, build process against a controlled target platform, leading to higher quality and repeatable product. The plugin supports the Eclipse 4.2 (Juno)/CDT 8.1 release and has been tested on Linux and Solaris.

Version 0.5.0 released July, 2009. Update dependencies allowing install with Eclipse 3.4+. Workaround CDT 6.0 bug which caused nmake project templates to not display. Eclipse variable ${project_loc} was not getting set leading to failure to build nmake template projects. Changed to use CDT variable ${ProjDirPath} instead. Update default version strings in project template definition files. Verify operation with Eclipse 3.5/CDT 6.0.

Version 0.4.0 released March, 2008. Introduce build definition toolchain support for Solaris. Introduce support for C++, including a new C++ project template. Globally change alu to alcatel_lucent in all identifiers and names. Pull out key build commands into property file for easier maintenance/modification. Add an empty project template for the nmake project type. Update help book documentation. Miscellaneous cleanups.

Version 0.3.2 released December, 2007. Includes build definitions for gcc/Linux, help documentation, and example project packaged as a CDT template.
