Eclipse XPS 1.2.0 released

Version 1.2.0 of the Eclipse XPS plug-in is available.

This release adds support for showing JUnit test results using the Dell XPS built-in LEDs on Windows Vista. Note that the support for Vista only works in Eclipse 3.3 (or higher) because OSGi in Eclipse 3.2 doesn't know about the Vista aliases.

So what's next?

First of all, it should be pretty straightforward to add support for the 64 bit versions of Windows XP and Vista, now that I know how to use the Bundle-NativeCode manifest header. If you know of anybody who is using Eclipse on one of these OSes on a Dell XPS laptop, let me know.

Personally, I also would like to add support for showing the results of Ant builds through the LEDs. Unfortunately, it looks like adding an Ant build listener in Eclipse is far from easy because of some classloading peculiarities. Throw in the use of native code (through JNI) and you're in for some serious headaches. Definitely needs further investigation...
