[Subclipse-users] [Subclipse-Announce] Subclipse moving to Github .. tigris.org project closing down

I have finished moving Subclipse to Github. In the process, I have also
overhauled the structure of the repository and setup build automation using
Maven/Tycho. To make this easier I have bumped the minimum Eclipse version
to 4.2.0.

New update sites are available on bintray.com which offers a global CDN
with fast downloads.

Information on the project and the update sites can be found here:

https://github.com/subclipse/subclipse/wiki

One important note. Upgrading to the new version does not currently work.
I have not decided yet if I will fix this, or can. With the new project, I
have tried to improve and simplify the packaging so that everything you
need is in the Subclipse feature and the remaining features are just for
optional stuff that depends on other Eclipse plugins. Because I have
orphaned some of the old features that are no longer needed this causes
upgrade to complain.

The solution is easy, just uninstall the existing features, including the
CollabNet Merge Plugin before you install the new version.

I do not plan to try to migrate open issues from tigris.org to Github. If
you have open issues you think should still be fixed then re-enter them on
Github. If we have not already fixed them, there is a good chance we do
not plan to. Though it is also possible we just did not see it, so it is
up to you.

With the new version, I only plan to support SVN 1.9.x client. Other than
a couple of fixes that had been committed to trunk, this new version should
be the same as the last 1.10.x version in terms of functionality. It has
just gone through a new build/packaging process.

I have also included the m2eclipse plugin for Subclipse in our build
process and included it on the site since a lot of people seem to want this
still.

Finally, while these mailing lists will remain open, I do not plan to use
them much. For questions, just post to StackOverflow and if you want to
follow releases there are mechanisms available on Github for doing that,
such as RSS feeds and other tools that will let you get email notifications
when a new build is posted.

Bintray.com also has a watch feature I have not used that will presumably
tell you when new builds are posted.

One last thing, as part of setting this up, every commit to master now
produces a new snapshot build that is posted to a snapshots repository. So
if you report a bug and we fix it, you can now get the fix immediately
without waiting for a formal release to be made.
