Eclipse 3.7 SR2 released!

24 February 2012, by: Arjan Tijms

With once again an amazing release accuracy, today Eclipse Indigo Service Release 2, aka Eclipse 3.7.2 has been released.

In the core packages, some 89 bugs have been fixed.

Important projects that are part of the release train were updated as well, for instance WTP was updated from 3.3.1 to 3.3.2 (a fact not mentioned yet on the WTP homepage, but it can be found here). WTP 3.3.2 fixes no less than 112 bugs.

My personal favorite bug that has been fixed is 100% CPU for long time in ASTUtils.createCompilationUnit. Just having a fairly innocent page in your workspace would completely hang the CPU for minutes or more.

For the next version of Eclipse we’re supposedly going to get to see the 4.x line by default on the downloads page, so this might well be the last 3.x version that’s prominently featured on said page. Time will tell of course.

For now, Eclipse 3.7.2 can thus be downloaded from the usual place at http://eclipse.org/downloads and the general release notes can be found at http://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/development/readme_eclipse_3.7.2.html

    [...] This time around, the WTP project did feel obliged to post about this event on their homepage. Following the Eclipse 4.2.1 release train, WTP was upgraded from 3.4.0 to 3.4.1. The famous “new and noteworthy” of WTP 3.4.1 unfortunately still points to the previous 3.4.0 release, but there is a list of fixed bugs available that luckily does point to the right version. [...]
