Changelog History

  • v0.16.1 Changes

    July 06, 2016
    • โšก๏ธ Updated minimum CDT to version 9.0 (CDT from Eclipse Neon).
    • โœ‚ Removed effectively useless "Start gocode server automatically" preference.
    • The GOROOT environment variable is no longer set when invoking Go tools (such as go, gocode, godef, etc.). (#214)
      • This causes problems with non-archive Go installations (such as those installed into /usr/bin), and the reason why it was set in the first place is not known - probably legacy code. Google also seems to indicate GOROOT should not be set explicitly.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: NPE when invoking Content Assist inside a comment, string or character.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed 0.16.0 regression: editor open definition hyperlink (Ctrl+click) not working. (#208)
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed 0.16.0 regression: Assertion exception when opening Go files in the compare editor. (#211)
  • v0.16.0 Changes

    June 22, 2016
    • โž• Added documentation hover (F2 or mouse-over the reference). Also documentation added to code completion popup.
    • โž• Added insertion of function arguments for function code completion proposals.
    • 0๏ธโƒฃ Enabled gocode's propose-builtins option, which isn't enabled by default.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Reworked the icon and label of code completion proposals and fixed some related issues. Now the icons are consistent with the Outline icons.
    • โœ‚ Removed preference "Show error dialog if gocode failures occur" as it's no longer necessary.
      • Content Assist will now distinguish between setup errors (errors that the user can fix, which are related to configuration and not the source code) and other tool errors. For setup/critical errors, a dialog will always be shown. For the other errors, if Content Assist was invoked manually, a dialog will also be shown, but if it was activated automatically the error will only be displayed in the editor status line.
    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved gofmt error message.
    • โž• Added: show Project Explorer error element if project is not contained in GOPATH.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: Eclipse variables not being substituted in environment-variable values of Build Targets and launch configurations.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: Project Explorer GOPATH elements not updated if project GOPATH settings changed.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: Progress dialog never showing up when "Ok" pressed in LANG_NAME project properties page.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: Erratic text cursor bug when typing in GOPATH field and gofmt field.
  • v0.15.0 Changes

    May 26, 2016
    • โž• Added support for lint build target, using gometalinter. (#163)
    • โž• Added customization of the build command for Build Targets:
      0๏ธโƒฃ It's now possible to specify a command other than the default one (the go tool).
      • Note however that Goclipse still expects the output of the command (the error messages) to be in the same format as the go tool (or gometalinter).
    • โž• Added support for invoking a specific Build Target when a GoClipse editor is saved. This is called "auto-check", and is intended for build commands that only check for compilation errors, but don't produce artifacts. This has the potential to be faster than a regular build.
      • Added Building section to documentation.
      • The goal for the future is to enable invoking this command on-the-fly (as the user types), although for this to be useful in practice it will likely require the compiler to support incremental compilation (or be super fast otherwise).
    • โž• Added support for modifying the environment variables of a Build Target's build command. (#191)
    • โšก๏ธ The Go oracle tool is now the guru tool. GoClipse has been updated to reflect this.
    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved the default names for automatically created launch configuration.
    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved error display for Outline operation failures.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed "IllegalStateException: The service has been unregistered" on Mars.2 when Eclipse is closed.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: Don't call editor save actions (such as gofmt) when Open Definition is requested.
  • v0.14.1 Changes

    February 25, 2016
    • โž• Added godef integration. godef is used as an alternative to oracle for the Open Definition operation.
      • I wasn't able to use it extensively, but it seems to be more powerful than oracle (it can recover from some compiler errors for example), and faster. Indeed, most other Go IDEs/editors are using godef, so this bring Goclipse in line with that.
    • โž• Added "Format automatically on editor save." preference.
    • ๐Ÿšš gofmt preferences moved to "Go/Tools" preference page.
    • Minor improvement to editor caret position preservation when invoking gofmt.
    • โž• Added signing to releases.
    • โœ‚ Removed GOOS and GOARCH from preferences, they no longer have an apparent use.
    • โœ‚ Removed godoc preference.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: Incorrect icon for errors and warnings in preference page status.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: Can't save preference pages with empty fields.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: Problem markers for the #build-tests target would not be created for Eclipse projects inside a GOPATH entry.
  • v0.14.0 Changes

    February 08, 2016
    • โž• Added on-the-fly parser errors in the editor (uses Go oracle).
    • โž• Added some new Snippets: for, foreach, switch, main, apl and a few others.
    • โž• Added improved download functionality in gocode/oracle preference page.
    • Pressing F2 in the editor now shows information popup for problem under cursor (same as the mouse-over hover).
    • ๐Ÿ— Project builder is no longer invoked when workspace "Build Automatically" setting is enabled and a file is saved. (this was considered a misfeature anyways)
    • ๐Ÿ— Dirty editors are now automatically saved if a build is invoked directly from a Build Target in the Project Explorer. (if the workspace "Save automatically before build" option is enabled).
    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved Auto-Indent when Enter pressed before a closing brace.
    • โž• Added preference to control whether project location is implicitly added to GOPATH or not.
    • โž• Added gocode preference to enable/disable showing the error dialog if failures occur during Content Assist.
    • Minimum and recommended CDT version is now 8.8.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Partially fixed outline not showing some method declarations. Now it works when editor is saved, but not if the editor is dirty. (#177)
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed NPE when invoking Open Definition in a file that is available in the Eclipse workspace under more than one path/location. (#167)
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed bug with Content Assist snippets using the ${word_selection} variable.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed workspace resource locking when a build is invoked directly from a Build Target in the Project Explorer.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed regression: Console view always activates when a build is invoked. (#158)
    • ๐Ÿ›  When debugging, fixed toggling breakpoints on and off for files that are outside the workspace.
    • ๐Ÿ›  When debugging, fixed opening source files that are are outside the workspace.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed line breakpoint icon.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: in New Go File Wizard, "Browse" button not working.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: "Restore Defaults" in "Go Compiler" settings page sometimes causes GOPATH field to be enabled when it shouldn't.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: project Build Targets settings pages shows wrong default for Program Path field.
  • v0.13.0 Changes

    October 29, 2015
    • โž• Added support for Eclipse dark theme (#131). Namely:
      • Syntax/source coloring now have different settings for dark theme.
      • Fixed Tools Console colors, as well as content assist pop-up colors.
    • โž• Added number literals syntax highlighting. (#138)
    • Syntax highlighting now works on the source compare editor/viewer.
    • โž• Added per-project compiler installation preferences. (#152)
    • ๐Ÿ†• Newly created launch configurations now have the debug option "Stop on startup at:" set to false by default. This way debugging won't stop on the C main, which is essentially useless outside of C/C++.
    • Fixed: Quick outline breaks when file begins with /* */. (#160)
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: Preferences: custom setting for gofmt command is not saved. (#166)
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: AssertionFailureException pressing Enter after source with more closing braces than opening ones.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: when invoking Go toolchain programs, add tool directory to beginning of PATH, not end.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: In Linux, the "Build Target" group UI widget height is broken, too short. (#150)
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: if build tool reports many error messages, the Eclipse project build will take too long to finish.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: "Run As"/"Debug As" launch shortcut incorrectly matching pre-existing launch configurations.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: project not being refreshed when Build Target build invoked directly from Project Explorer.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed: "null" text inserted when cancel pressed in "Variables..." and other dialogs.

  • v0.12.0 Changes

    August 05, 2015
    • โž• Added: support for Build Targets:
      • Build Targets are displayed in the Project Explorer. Here you can also configure which targets are enabled for a workspace build.
      • Predefined Build Targets for Go are: ./... #build, ./... #build-tests, ./... #[run-tests]. See the updated Build section in the UserGuide for more information.
      • Project Build Configuration property page updated to support configuring Build Targets.
      • Note that a ./... Build Target is not launchable. To run a Go launch, you need to specify a specific Go package.
    • โž• Added: Explicit GOPATH preference option to use the same value as the GOPATH environment variable.
    • 0๏ธโƒฃ No longer required to set an explicit value for the GOOS and GOARCH preference for running tools such as Go Oracle. You can just leave those fields at the default setting.

    • โœ‚ Removed go fix menu operation.
    • ๐Ÿ“š Updated Configuration section in the User Guide.
