This release updates the required Java version for MPC from Java 8 to Java 11 since this is now also required by Eclipse. Additionally, we improved the startup up time of Marketplace client by refactored HTTP and Transport layer initialization. Everything is lazy and service-based now. Doing that we were the able to completely remove the bundle activators for both core and ui plugin. Debugging helpers can now be found in org.eclipse.epp.internal.mpc.ui.MarketplaceClientDebug, UI resources are accessable via org.eclipse.epp.internal.mpc.ui.MarketplaceClientUiResources.
