QVTO will produce maintenance releases to align with the Kepler Service Releases which includes the Eclipse Platform's 4.3.1 release. QVTO may produce additional interim maintenance releases. Maintenance releases will only be published if they contain new fixes. Friday, September 27, 2013 - QVTO 3.3.1 maintenance release for Kepler Service Release 1. Version numbers are subject to change should there be be any additional maintenance releases.


Most of the 3.3 APIs will be compatible with QVTO 3.2.


The Eclipse Platform is designed as the basis for internationalized products. The user interface elements provided by the Eclipse SDK components, including dialogs and error messages, are externalized. The English strings are provided as the default resource bundles. As a result, the QVTO project will provide English strings in its default bundles and be localized to a subset of those locales offered by the Platform. This plan will be updated to indicate which locales will be provided and the time frame for availability.

Target Environments

In order to remain current, each Eclipse release targets reasonably current versions of the underlying operating environments. The QVTO project depends upon on the Platform and other projects, which are mostly "pure" Java. The 4.3 release of the Eclipse Platform Project is written and compiled against version 1.6 of the Java Platform APIs, and targeted to run on version 1.6 of the Java Runtime Environment, Standard Edition. QVTO will target the same Java version as the platform.
