This afternoon we're changing the definitions
of the system parts (the built-in EGL types). You can see the new
system part definitions under org.eclipse.edt.compiler\eglsource. If
you need EDT to work, do not synch up with CVS this afternoon.
The changes will impact you in several
1. We are removing support for several
kinds of parts and types. We're cutting things down because EDT 0.7
won't support everything. We will add them back in version 1.0. For
a detailed list of what's supported in 0.7 see http://wiki.eclipse.org/EDT:EGL_Language
2. The names of some types and packages
3. Many functions that used to be in
system libraries like StrLib and DateTimeLib have been moved into types
like string and date. For example we no longer have StrLib.clip(string).
It's now string.clip(). So you'll write myString.clip() in
place of StrLib.clip(myString).
I'll send another message when the changes
are complete. If we don't finish today, tonight's build will probably
not be useful. In the meantime, please don't open bugs if you're
using the latest code.
