LDSTech IDE 2.0.0
Upgraded to Eclipse Juno
This version is based on Eclipse Juno. However, instead of Eclipse 4.2 we're using 3.8. After some testing it was determined that 4.2 was still a little too buggy for our liking. If you wish to use LDSTech IDE features in Eclipse 4.2 just download a vanilla 4.2 and Install LDSTech IDE in Existing Eclipse.
Our new installer is no installer. Recent changes in the Eclipse platform and a number of our plugins have allowed us to eliminate our installer all together. We now simply provide compressed packages. To install basically unzip and execute. For more details on setting up JDKs and resolving errors launching eclipse refer to the Getting started with the LDSTech IDE documentation.
To help facilitate moving to a .zip package we've embedded tomcat into the IDE itself. Tomcats will now be upgraded with IDE upgrades and Server Runtimes will still automatically be created.
New Build and Promotion System
It is now much easier to build and release LDSTech IDE. Expect to see more frequent plugin updates independent of significant IDE updates. You can also automatically be subscribed to our beta or dev release streams by simply installing a beta or dev.
Automatic Use of ipv4
Java 7 uses IPv6 by default. ICS vpn software currently doesn't support IPv6. This causes all kinds of non obvious problems. To help eliminate hair pulling and needless troubleshooting hour we now automatically add the java argument necessary to enable IPv4 by default everywhere that we can.
Get to eclipse exploded war easily
Normally the synchronization between your eclipse tomcat server and your project works great. However, occasionally to debug problems it is useful to view in a file system the exploded war that eclipse copies your project resources into. This exploded war location can sometimes be difficult to find. To simplify this we've added an "Exploded WAR" link to the server properties page.
