  • Added support to use a path to the libjli.dylib as -vm argument. In macOS the only way to use a JDK downloaded with SDKMAN (or any other JDK that does not have the macOS directory layout) is specifying the path to the libjli.dylib file, like -vm /<PATH_TO_YOUR_JDK>/jre/lib/jli/libjli.dylib. Thanks @mdaloia!

  • Updated branding information.

  • Spring cleaning:
    • Removed the OS X Quick Look feature that was introduced in 1.3.0. It was not very popular and to put it frankly; not very useful.
    • Renamed all bundles from "no.resheim.eclipse.utils.*" to "net.resheim.eclipse.launcher" version numbering will now reflect the version of the launcher feature, Hence the jump from 1.4.0 to 3.0.0.
    • Travis-CI infrastructure is set up for the project. This enables continous building and makes it easier for contributors.
    • Updated branding and EULA.
  • Added "-clean" feature to the "Advanced" dialog for clearing OSGi and runtime caches.

If you have an older version installed you must uninstall this before installing this version. Go to Eclipse > About Eclipse > Installation Details, select "OS X Eclipse Launcher Utility" and click Uninstall.... Automatic update to 3.0.0 will not work.
