PTP source code release, available as a commit tagged "PTP_8_0_0" in the project's Git Repository.
The runtime and SDK features are available in a P2 repository. See our Hudson build page to download a copy of the nightly build repository. For each milestone of 8.0 there will be a download page containing the current repository, the major packages in zip format, and the runtime zips for the server code.
Parallel Tools Platform (PTP):
PTP SDK (includes runtime, user and programmer documentation, with sources)
PTP client runtime binaries (includes user documentation)
SysMon monitoring utility (RCP application)
This is a major release, so it will not be backward compatible.
PTP is designed as the basis for internationalized products. The user interface elements provided by the PTP components, including dialogs and error messages, are externalized. The English strings are provided as the default resource bundles. The default bundles will 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 timeframe for availability.
In order to remain current, each Eclipse release is designed to run on reasonably current versions of the underlying operating environments.
The PTP Project 8.0 release depends upon on the Eclipse Platform 4.4. For this release, the sources will be written and compiled against Java SE 7, and are designed to run on that version as well.
The PTP deliverables will be tested and validated against a small subset of the reference platforms listed in the Eclipse Platform 4.4 Project Plan (this list is updated over the course of the release cycle).
Microsoft Windows 7; SP1; x86, 64-bit; Win32; Oracle Java 6
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server; 11; x86, 64-bit; GTK; Oracle Java 6 or IBM Java 6
Apple Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks); Universal 64-bit; Cocoa; Oracle Java 6
Eclipse and PTP undoubtedly run fine in many operating environments beyond the reference platforms we test. However, since we do not systematically test them we cannot vouch for them. Problems encountered when running PTP on a non-reference platform that cannot be recreated on any reference platform will be given lower priority than problems with running PTP on a reference platform.
