Many members of our team were active project leads and committers for Eclipse 3.5
Portland, OR (Vocus) July 16, 2009
EclipseSource, the leading provider of Eclipse runtime products and services, today announced that it has updated its full suite of tools and services to provide full support for the Eclipse Galileo release. In addition, as part of the community effort backing Eclipse 3.5, the company is providing free unlimited high speed downloads of the release from its corporate site and through its Yoxos On Demand provisioning system.
“Many members of our team were active project leads and committers for Eclipse 3.5”, said Jeff McAffer, EclipseSource’s CTO and co-lead of the Eclipse Equinox and RCP projects. “3.5 is a solid release and we look forward to working with our customers to assist them with their migration planning and implementation.”
EclipseSource’s course curriculum now offers training in OSGi and Equinox, RAP and RCP for both the 3.4 and 3.5 releases. In addition, Yoxos, the company’s suite of provisioning and configuration management tools, now provides support for development teams using either release.
As an important corollary to their support for 3.5, EclipseSource also renewed its commitment to continue offering subscription-based support for 3.4 as well as earlier releases of the platform.
“Galileo is a great release, but not all of our customers are ready to migrate yet”, said Jochen Krause, CEO, EclipseSource. “We recognize that many organizations will remain on 3.4 or earlier releases for some time and that they will require ongoing support and maintenance for their platform.”
Eclipse Maintenance is currently available for Eclipse 3.3 and 3.4. The subscription-based service offers patches, software updates and a running maintenance stream for releases no longer supported by the Eclipse community.
