The RAP team has been working hard over the last weeks and made another milestone build for RAP 2.0 available today.
Some public classes and interfaces, most notably the resource manager, have been cleaned up in M3 and made ready for RAP 2.0. After 6+ years of development, RAP’s API simply needs some cleanup. But don’t worry, we will keep the number of breaking changes low and let deprecated classes in place where possible to ease the migration. And we’re maintaining a RAP 2.0 migration guide to assist you.
For a more detailed list of changes and bugfixes in this milestone, have a look at our New and Noteworthy page. The build is available for download on the project’s download page and is also included in the Eclipse Kepler repository: https://download.eclipse.org/releases/kepler/.
RAP 2.0 is going to be released in February 8, 2013. For next year’s simultaneous release, Eclipse Kepler, we’ll plan a follow-up release. We hope you are as excited about RAP 2.0 as we are and the migration goes smooth for you. Let us know what you think!
