Hi Marcus,

Does that mean, what Eclipse platform versions we'll support for building the RCP package? If yes, then I think it's perfectly fine to use only the latest Eclipse versions.

That's the more difficult question I guess. Can JMC be installed as a plugin to some Eclipse installation? Then we should try to support lower platform versions. However, if we were to support the 4.8.0 platform, we'd need to build the plugins against the 4.8.0 platform then, right? Doesn't that contradict to your first proposal?

Best regards
