Subject Re: IvyDE from Eclipse Marketplace is ancient
Date Mon, 11 Jun 2018 14:55:13 GMT
Well, my plan was to stay with the last version of Eclipse that works with 
IvyDE,   If it stops working, I'll wait a couple years (I'm a lazy 
bastard), and then update IvyDE myself -- if need be.   If that were to 
prove impossible (very unlikely), I'd move to gradle (or what not) -- 
anything but maven (which I loath).  Ant has a couple shortcomings, but 
I'm comfortable with it, and am able to accomplish feats the mere 
contemplation of which would make a mavenite cry for his mommy. 

Even if a real release is not needed, IvyDE should probably do a "bump" 
release every two years -- just to let the world know the project isn't 
pushing up daisies.

Indeed, IvyDE does seem to be working well.  Says good things about both
IvyDE and the APIs in Eclipse, when something that's so old continues to

But it does make me nervous to see no releases in nearly five years. 
Found the project page for IvyDE, and it says this is the right mailing

In my travels to learn whether it's a dead project or not, I see an
issue for exactly the problem I was experiencing which got me started
down this rabbit hole:

The SVN trunk for ivyde shows a last commit date four years ago, but the
github repository shows a commit TODAY.

Which prompts the question: Is IvyDE dead?
