I think you didn’t grasp the current situation so I’m explaining it, because apparently there is no blog post or announcement about it (core maintainers are not the best when it comes to public affairs and information flow here).
- openHAB was split into Eclipse Smarthome and openHAB addons until beginning of this year.
- It was decided to reintegrate Eclipse Smarthome back to openHAB and call it openHAB Core.
- The buildsystem was changed just about 1 month later from Tycho to bnd.
- Everything broke
And we haven’t yet recovered from 4. We are currently at the point that at least everything (almost, MaryTTS is still failing) builds again. There is no working IDE setup and the initiator of the project (Kai) struggles to get a working IDE for himself even.
We are overdue of milestone builds M2, M3, M4 and M5. Those are usually released every month.
The next big stable release is according to the half year release schedule due in about 4 weeks. Nobody knows if that timeline is realistic.
That’s the reason why you cannot expect much help right now and we are rather stressed ourselves. Your timing of writing your thesis is just a bit unfortunate. You can expect a working IDE in about a month hopefully, together with the OH 2.5 release.
You might try with older checkouts, but that might be fiddling a lot, because the old infrastructure (tycho p2 repositories) is already unmaintained or shutdown. The snapshot builds are still your best bet rn.
