As the 1.8 release is out now, it is time for all your developers to look what comes next. As mentioned in my blog post, I would like to ask you all to move over to the new runtime and make sure that your add-ons work on 1.8 as well as on 2.0. Since the runtime bundles will vanish from the 1.x repo very soon, this is the right time to use the new IDE setup that I have prepared. This should allow you to work on the code as you worked before (with a few exceptions), regardless whether it is openHAB 1, openHAB 2 or Eclipse SmartHome.
@teichsta will prepare a PR on openHAB 1 to globally apply the new code formatter - so until then, it is probably time to take a rest and continue working until the repo is updated accordingly.
If you have any questions regarding the new IDE setup, please ask right here!
