This is the first "release candidate"
for Eclipse 4.3.2 and Equinox Kepler SR2. There will be 3 other RCs, with
the official release planned for February 28. This first one we call a
"warm-up" RC, in that it is not a true "release candidate"
... that is, its is not tested as systematically as the remaining RCs will
be, and there are some bugs we know we still want to fix before the true
release candidate (RC2). Put another way, the community and adopters
are welcome to test this version if you'd like, but ... if you have limited
resources and want to test something close to "final", we recommend
waiting until RC2.
As a reminder to casual readers who
may not track the complete week-by-week Simultaneous Release schedule,
these URLs are for the "Eclipse Platform" specifically,
and not the "all-in-one"
packages produced by the EPP project. Those packages (for RC1) will be
available in one week, on January 24.
Many thanks to the community, contributors,
and committers who are making this service release possible.
