Release Notes: Saros now supports session-independent 1-to-1 chats, enabling direct communication with your buddies. New color management was introduced, which tries to ensure that you always get the same colors in your session, independent of who started the session in the first place. Since the computation of the contribution annotations (who wrote what) is CPU intense, this was made an optional feature. Many minor fixes and usability improvements were made.
Release Notes: The focus of this release was on the file and folder operations (create, delete, move). They now work much more reliably.
Release Notes: The invitation code is rewritten, and the invitation dialog is not modal anymore. The host can continue to use Eclipse while the invitations are running.
Release Notes: This release focuses on improvements in the invitation module. The invitation process can be canceled now at any stage by both parties. The character encoding of the host is transmitted with the invitation and all participants use the same encoding.
Release Notes: The plugin now sends XMPP presence information so participants can see when others leave the Eclipse window for more than five seconds. Users can give a pseudonym for submitting error logs and statistical data so the developers can link this information from different Saros sessions without knowing the user's identity. In good news for Windows users, Saros no longer converts line delimiters to Unix style, instead using the delimiter style of the host.
Release Notes: Lots of bugs were fixed and some improvements were made to the network module. Now file transfers and activities can be much larger and still be transmitted much faster. Support was added for Eclipse PHP Development Tools (PDT). Using Saros via Google Talk is now supported. There is a dropin archive as an alternative to the update site.
Release Notes: Role changes got more robust and an experimental concurrent undo was added. That feature must be activated in the redesigned preference dialogs.
Release Notes: Jabber account creation was improved to deal with some quirks in popular servers. Adding new buddies in the roster has been completely overhauled and now is much more robust. Many bugs regarding role changes were fixed. The number of characters you and your remote peer typed is now collected as a per session statistic. The initial synchronization was made better and faster. Communication to the Jabber server was improved by drastically reducing the messages sent per second. Saros supports Eclipse 3.5 and 3.4 now.
Release Notes: This is the first public beta release.
