We are happy to say that we have the new milestone for Liferay IDE 3.1 released as described in section Updates and Feedback in Liferay IDE 3.1 Milestone 1 Released.
Go to http://releases.liferay.com/tools/ide/latest/milestone/ to install the updatesite.
If you want to download full Eclipse Neon bundled with Liferay IDE, just go to this page.
The only one obvious feature in milestone is Maven Support In Code Update Tool.
You can put your 6.2 maven root project path in the second page in Code Update Tool, and click “Import Projects” button.
And there is a new page called “Upgrade POM Files” added as the third page. Also we moved the “Find Breaking Changes” page before “Update Descriptor Files” page.
In the third page, you can search all pom.xml files in current Eclipse workspace and preview the changes Code Upgrade Tool is going the make and then either upgrade them one by one or all at once. Be sure to double click the file to see what changes are going to be made by the tool.
There are few more features added.
Add ability to customize bundle URL when importing a Liferay Workspace Project
Deploy Error Tooltip on Liferay Server
When some project build error after some changes, hover on the server, you can see the detail information of the error.
Our next release version will be 3.1 m3 and will come up with more helpful features, e.g. maven type liferay workspace support, new JSF portlet wizard, migrate legacy service builder project, source lookup fixing in Liferay 7x Server Launches.
Please goto community forums if you have any questions. We will try our best to help. Regards.
