Contents



6.7 candidates

  • P1 - Issue 149071 - Rid of licenses in Update Center Descriptor (6.7, medium complexity)
  • Licenses occupies more than 2/3 download size of Update Center
  • Possible OutOfMemory while parsing Update Centers (Issue 148324)
  • Though as same licenses are also stored in NBM metadata
  • Push back license agreement after download phase like:
      1. Description what plugins will install
      2. Download plugins
      3. Plugin validation
      4. Agreement all licenses (in that case license hasn't been agreed yet)
      5. Plugin installation
      6. Restart IDE if needed
  • P1 - Issue 141714 - Updates of invisible modules not offered in Plugin Manager (6.7, medium compl. and needs UI review)
  • Only visible modules (all its dependents) can be installed
  • Not all updates can be easily accessible
  • Current UI doesn't support updating of non-visual modules
  • Need a meeting with Jano Rojcek and review whole update process
  • P2 - STARTED Issue 146153 - API providing programmatic way to display Plugin Manager dialog
  • It's partly done. This API was introduced in 6.7 as friend contract
  • Need to fire API REVIEW and publish as officially API
  • P2 - Issue 133504 - Support for plugin verification against CA
  • Implement together with Issue 112073 - Validate NBMs by certs pre-installed with the JDK


Most user required improvements

  • Plugins can be install either in installation directory (in specified cluster), or in userdir
  • Users have no control plugins placement
  • P2 - Issue 24357 - ModuleUpdater should set file permissions on Unix
  • It's a quite isolated problem and IMHO it's not too risky take care about it.
  • The current UI allows deactivate plugin individually only
  • Needs change UI spec. for allow deactivate multiple plugins
