End of support for Eclipse Juno in SAP HANA Cloud Platform Tools planned for end of June 2014
As you know, currently the Eclipse Tools for SAP HANA Cloud Platform support Juno and Kepler release trains of the Eclipse platform. Juno is the release from June 2012 and its end of maintenance was in February 2013, Kepler is the release from June 2013 with end of maintenance in February 2014, Luna is the current release under development which will be released in June 2014.
We would like to stop the support for Juno in the end of June 2014, when Luna will be released. This is more than one year after the end of support by Eclipse.org. We will reallocate the resources that will become free for the early adoption of Luna – to ensure that it will be released in June 2014 with the desired quality for SAP HANA Cloud Platform.
|Eclipse Train||Released by Eclipse.org||End of Maintenance by Eclipse.org||Planned End of Support by SAP HANA Cloud Platform|
|Juno||June 2012||February 2013||June 2014|
|Kepler||June 2013||February 2014||June 2015|
|Luna||June 2014||February 2015||June 2016|
What does “end of support for Juno” exactly mean? We will stop delivering new versions (both features and fixes) of the Eclipse Tools for SAP HANA Cloud Platform on the Juno update site (https://tools.hana.ondemand.com/juno). However, the update site will remain available as long as the last version of the tools for Juno continue working with the SAP HANA Cloud Platform. When the cloud platform changes in a way that the Juno version of the tools does not work anymore, we will shut down this branch of the update site.
I encourage everybody who is still using Eclipse Juno to upgrade to Eclipse Kepler.
If anyone sees any problem with this plan, please speak up by posting a comment in this discussion.
