There is no big change to what we've
done for years. We never broke an existing non-deprecated API in any release
(even when going to e4), but we do announce that we will remove deprecatedAPIs after a 2 year period, and when there is no objection we remove them.
This is covered by https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse/API_Central/Deprecation_Policy#Removal_of_Deprecated_API.
The only change is that we will now do this every quarter (but still with
2 year period). This is necessary to keep the code maintainable.

Change in Eclipse SDK release cadence Sent by:
No, no specific concerns or doubts. In fact I decided
it was a silly question, since it is the simultaneous release that has a policy of "no breaking
API changes, off-cycle".
So, the original announcement must have meant "update releases".
