Release: 

9.1.0

Description: 

PTP 9.1.0 is a minor release that ships with the Neon simultaneos release. This is primarily a bug fix release, however some packaging changes were made that necessitates a minor relase number increment. Some functionality improvements have been made, however most of the development work currently being focussed in the Remote packages (org.eclipse.remote). The New & Noteworthy page details the significant changes.

API Certification: 

The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".

Architectural Issues: 

The org.eclipse.ptp.pldt.openacc package has been split into core, ui, and cli in order to better facitility future development.

Security Issues: 

None.

Communities: 

Participation in the Remote project is continuting to grow, and we have seen adoption by other projects such as CDT and TCF.

The PTP plugins are included in the Eclipse ICE project, and so we are seeing some growth in this area. We expect this to continue into the next release.

We continue to see questions regarding Fortran, synchronized projects, and the parallel debugger, which indicates these features have strong user bases.
