Here are some of the more noteworthy things available in this release.
Sightly support has been added through an additional, optional, feature named Sling IDE Tools - Sightly Integration.
This feature provides the following enhancements:
These enhancements are enabled once the Sightly facet is added to a project. This is done automatically when converting a project to content project, but can also be done manually via the project properties, under the Project Facets page.
When first connecting to a Sling instance, the IDE tooling tries to bind all the sources associated with the bundles deployed on the server and retrieves the associated source artifacts using Maven. Therefore, the debug classpath is as close as possible to sources used to build the bundles deployed on the server.
Since a first source bundle resolution can potentially take a long time, this behaviour can be disabled from the server configuration page.
Maven projects configured using the
com.day.jcr.vault:content-package-maven-plugin are now automatically configured as content projects, removing the need to manually add the needed facets after importing them into Eclipse for the first time.
