Mars.1 was successfully released on Friday, October 2nd. “Mars.1” is the first “service release” for Mars. The community has decided not to call the second and third release of one release stream “service” releases, as many participating projects also add new features. However, specifically the core components mainly focus on stability in Mars.1 and Mars.2 and therefore, we recommend to always update the IDE to the newest version. We updated the EclipseSource Oomph Profile accordingly, so, if you use our profile, you just need to restart your Eclipse IDE, and all updates will be applied for you. If you are running multiple instances, please close all except the one you restart. The update will take a while and run in the background, you can observe the status in the progress view on the bottom of your IDE. Once the update is finished, you need to restart again, the update should be completed and you should see the new splash screen. Please see here to learn how to use the EclipseSource Oomph profile.
