Binaries for the latest F4 1.1.4 Fantom IDE release are now available on GitHub:
The latest codebase has been put through its paces over the past couple of weeks and it seems stable enough for a general release.
Differences from F4 1.1.4 RC2:
Text from the GitHub release:
This means F4 now runs on any current version of Java!
The last point removes the build churn previously encountered when opening and closing projects and editing build.fan files. In essence, F4 1.1.4 is much faster in a multi-project environment.
Note: On Windows, you may need to run F4 as an administrator.
Well, they're essential to me at least!
Simply put, I've been unable to compile or assemble F4 with anything later. Here's a summary of incompatibilities:
There were no compilation issues with these later eclipse platforms, but the maven build to assemble the binaries would FAIL after a warning about a missing tool in the build chain.
As you may imagine, the majour update in the DLTK version brings about many compilation issues.
Therefore F4 will have to stay at Eclipse 4.9 until further investigation can be performed. But with 4.9 working with at least JDK 14, I hope this won't be an issue for most people.
I have downloaded my system version. Thanks once again.
The Linux x86 version is very unstable. Don't use it.
The Linux x86_64 version is rock, though. We shouldn't develop on a 32 bit only machine anyway. x86_64 with more RAM is more suitable for Java.
