Saros Release Notes

The Saros Team is happy to announce Saros for Eclipse 15.0.0

Since the last release of Saros for Eclipse we mostly restructured, refactored and reworked the project in more than 1000 commits. From now on we want to use a lot shorter release cycles in order to provide fixes and features faster.

Upgrade Instructions

Attention: If you install the new Saros version, your saved XMPP Account data will get lost.

We changed the structure of our configuration files and the location of our update-site. Therefore, if you used the previous Saros version, please:

Where is the Whiteboard?

You may know the Saros whiteboard from the previous release. Due to stability issues we did not release the Whiteboard feature of Saros, which allowed to share drawings between Saros users. We plan to release a new whiteboard as soon as it works reliable.

JDK requirements

Saros 15.0.0 requires JDK8+, since we switched to JDK8 internally.
