Re: [ide-dev] Dropping the release names (Neon, Oxygen) from user downloads

Hi

Seems like a good idea. I don't see a problem with subreleases.

Neon(.0)/Neon.1/Neon.2 might be 2016(.0), 2016.1, 2016.2

This could extend sensibly to our confusing feature/plugin versions so that we could have semantic-version.release-year.maintenance-version, so that this years platform plugins would be a mix of

3.2016.0 and 4.2016.0

The 0.0.100 etc convention need not be affected.

Those projects that do more than one minor release per year might number them 2016, 201601, 201602 etc

BTW, quick question. What do you call the minor releases, especially the one that happens in February, e.g. would the one next February be 2016.3, even though it's February 2017? I know the Planning Council will ask that question.

Hi Tracy,

I agree with you as I here very often people asking about what's the latest release, or confused about it. Even worse, I saw people using Helios and not even wondering whether it's old or not ( https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=484765 ) .
I agree that the release year is probably the simplest and most efficient name we can provide. There are a lot of existing very successful software (the main one I have in mind being Microsoft Office) that have adopted this convention and I don't think it has ever been an issue for their users or editors.

Is there a bug to track this suggestion?

Cheers,
