The primary deliverable for PTP is the "Parallel Application Developers" package. The most commonly used features of PTP are also included in the Kepler simultaneous release.
The PTP source code is contained in the org.eclipse.ptp.git and org.eclipse.photran.git repos which are tagged PTP_7_0.
PTP provides its own update site which includes all features. This site is located at http://download.eclipse.org/tools/ptp/updates/kepler
There have been significant API changes in this release. An attempt has been made to retain compatibility where possible, but many old and deprecated APIs were removed from this release.
Contributors are required to localize all strings in PTP.
PTP is tested on the following platforms:
We belive this covers the vast majority of users. Issues with other platforms are addressed on an "as required" basis.
Synchronized project improvements
Synchronized projects have been restructured to remove dependencies on CDT. This potentially allows any type of Eclipse project to be synchronized (currently only CDT and platform projects are implemented.) Improvements to the filtering and user interfaces has also been provided.
Environment management support
Support has been added to allow the ordering of environment "modules" which is required by a number of sites. Environment management has also been extended to a per-synchronized configuration basis.
System monitoring application
A stand-alone system monitoring application will be available. This application uses a subset of PTP to allow applications to be run and monitored on a wide variety of target systems.
