Eclipse 3.5.2-1 in Debian unstable

We, the Debian Orbital Alignment Team (DOA team), have released eclipse 3.5.2-1 to Debian unstable today after nearly seven month of work and 612 commit to our git repository. Many thanks to our hero Niels Thykier (222 commits). Without him we wouldn’t have eclipse in Debian now. Thanks to Pablo Duboue, Adnan Hodzic, and Adrian Perez for their work on the Debian package. Last but not least, I want to thank Alexander Kurtakov and Andrew Overholt for eclipse-build, which we use to build eclipse.

You should have modern hardware, if you want to build eclipse. It will need three gigabytes free disk space, two gigabytes memory, and at least 12 minutes to build, but it can need hours (on old hardware or if you have not enough memory).

Update: Four days later we released 3.5.2-2 to Debian unstable. Today eclipse 3.5.2-2 was synced to Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid).

    • Plugins are on our to do list. The next plugin on the list is cdt. After that there is probably pydev. Everyone is welcome to join the DOA team and help packaging Eclipse plugins.
