Eclipse Collections 8.0

Target: September 2016 => Released

Leverage features of Java 8. Eclipse Collections already uses Java 8 in test modules, but the main library targets Java 5 bytecode. By dropping support for older versions of Java, Eclipse Collections can benefit from new features and better integrate with the standard libraries.

  • Make Eclipse Collections functional interfaces extend Java 8 functional interfaces
  • Add new API methods that return Optional
  • Add Java 8 feature compatible APIs such as reduce, reduceInPlace, summarize{Int/Float/Long/Double}
  • Add Collectors2 utility class that contains Collector implementations that work well with Eclipse Collections types and algorithms.
  • Use default methods to reduce lines of code and jar size

Schedule Plan:

Eclipse Collections 7.1

Target: April 2016 => Released

Make minor updates for OSS community engagement.

  • Migrate the GS Collections Kata to the Eclipse Collections Kata.
  • Provide instruction on migration from GS Collections to Eclipse Collections.
  • Update Eclipse project files.

Eclipse Collections 7.0

Target: January 2016 => Released

The initial release of Eclipse Collections. We're starting the version number at 7.0 since it's functionally equivalent to GS Collections 7.0 after migrating the project to the Eclipse Foundation.

  • Replace Apache 2.0 license with EDL and EPL dual license.
  • Convert package names, directory structures from "com.gs" to "org.eclipse".
  • Remove the memory-tests module that rely on a third party library with a different license.
  • Update author information, README.md, and any other strings which refer to GS Collections.
  • Update README.md contents to be in line with Eclipse Collections.
  • Configure git settings.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
