The supplied dates indicate when the API change was made, on the CVS trunk. From this you can generally tell whether the change should be present in a given build or not; for trunk builds, simply whether it was made before or after the change; for builds on a stabilization branch, whether the branch was made before or after the given date. In some cases corresponding API changes have been made both in the trunk and in an in-progress stabilization branch, if they were needed for a bug fix; this ought to be marked in this list.
Fuller descriptions of all changes can be found below (follow links).
Not all deprecations are listed here, assuming that the deprecated APIs continue to essentially work. For a full deprecation list, please consult the Javadoc.
These API specification versions may be used to indicate that a module requires a certain API feature in order to function. For example, if you see here a feature you need which is labelled 1.20, your manifest should contain in its main attributes the line:
OpenIDE-Module-Module-Dependencies: $codebase > 1.20
IndexingSupport; made by: sdedic
Parsers may need to provide reduced data for indexing, or enriched data for source parsing. The added isIndexingTask() method identifies tasks applied by indexing infrastructure.
QuerySupport; made by: tzezula
Added a support for custom camel case separators and custom camel case parts into
Historically the module offered both APIs for Parsing (invoking parser, implementing parser) and Indexing (refresh index, index SPIs). Those APIs are typically used by unrelated pieces of code, possibly with the exception of "refresh" actions.
The indexing now resides separately in its
parsing.indexing module. Binary compatibility
is kept by using module-auto-deps.xml.
