I’d like to extend a special thanks to those that helped us diagnose and resolve several issues on the Mac OS. This point release addresses the problems we had launching the software via the “workbench.app” file. It will no longer be necessary to use the separate startup script. It also addresses a problem related to File Dialog windows. In certain cases these interactions with the Mac file picker resulted in an immediate software crash.
As it turns out both issues were really addressed upstream, in the Eclipse project. I was able to pull updated versions of the Eclipse plugins and rebuild the workbench with the fixes. At this point I’ll tip my hat to the Eclipse Project folks. It is wonderful to be part of such a large and vibrant developer community.
These fixes are in the current stable release, available at the usual download site:
