<h2>API removals in the Eclipse 4.6 release</h2>

<h3>1. <a name="runtime">Eclipse 2.0 runtime model and boot API</a></h3>
<p>
When the Eclipse runtime transitioned to use OSGi as its implementation, some existing
APIs for interacting with the old runtime were deprecated and moved to a compatibility fragment
(<tt>org.eclipse.core.runtime.compatibility</tt>). All API that was still valid was moved
elsewhere. These APIs have been non-functional since Eclipse 3.0 and will therefore
be removed in the future. The following packages will be removed:
</p>
<ul>
 <li><tt>org.eclipse.core.boot</tt></li>
 <li><tt>org.eclipse.core.runtime.model</tt></li>
 </ul>
 The compatibility fragment, <tt>org.eclipse.core.runtime.compatibility</tt> will
 also be removed. As a consequence <code>org.eclipse.ui.startup</code> extensions will no longer work if they do not specify a class that implements <code> org.eclipse.ui.IStartup</code>.
<p>
For further details or to provide feedback on this change, see <a href="https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=370248" target="_blank">bug 370248</a>.
</p>

<h2>API removals in the Eclipse 4.7 release</h2>

<h3>1. <a name="listenerlist">org.eclipse.jface.util.ListenerList</a></h3>
<p>
The <code>org.eclipse.jface.util.ListenerList</code> class is deprecated since 2005 and has been replaced by <code>org.eclipse.core.runtime.ListenerList with org.eclipse.core.runtime.ListenerList.IDENTITY</code> as argument.
The <code>org.eclipse.jface.util.ListenerList</code> class is planned to get deleted.
</p>
<p>
For further details or to provide feedback on this change, see <a href="https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=436448" target="_blank">bug 436448</a>.

<h2>API removals after June 2017</h2>


<h3>1. <a name="auth">Platform authorization API</a></h3>
<p>
Since Eclipse 1.0, the Eclipse Platform class provided API for storing and retrieving
passwords in a keyring file. This API used an inherently insecure method for encrypting
credentials, and used a custom encryption algorithm that made it difficult for some
consumers to distribute and export Eclipse-based products. For these and other reasons,
this API was deprecated and replaced in Eclipse 3.4 with a new Equinox secure storage API.
In Eclipse 4.2 the implementation of the old authorization methods was removed, but the API left in place.
This old API will be removed completely in a future release. The following API methods will
be removed from <tt>org.eclipse.core.runtime.Platform</tt>:
</p>
<ul>
 <li><tt>addAuthorizationInfo(URL serverUrl, String realm, String authScheme, Map info)</tt></li>
 <li><tt>getAuthorizationInfo(URL serverUrl, String realm, String authScheme)</tt></li>
 <li><tt>flushAuthorizationInfo(URL serverUrl, String realm, String authScheme)</tt></li>
 <li><tt>addProtectionSpace(URL resourceUrl, String realm)</tt></li>
 <li><tt>getProtectionSpace(URL resourceUrl)</tt></li>
 </ul>

<h3>2. <a name="fullscreen">org.eclipse.ui.cocoa.fullscreenWindow</a></h3>
<p>
Eclipse Platform 4.2 introduced a OS&nbsp;X-specific command to toggle full-screen
called <code>org.eclipse.ui.cocoa.fullscreenWindow</code> (<a href="https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=376394" target="_blank">bug 376394</a>),
bound to Command-Ctrl-F.  In 4.6 we introduced a cross-platform command
to toggle full-screen called <code>org.eclipse.ui.window.fullscreenmode</code>
(<a href="https://bugs.eclipse.org/489087" target="_blank">bug 489087</a> and
<a href="https://bugs.eclipse.org/491572" target="_blank">bug 491572</a>).  As a result,
we have two "Toggle Full Screen" commands on OS&nbsp;X, and both
appear in the <em>Quick Access</em>.  We will consolidate our code to
use <code>org.eclipse.ui.window.fullscreenmode</code>, and plan to
remove <code>org.eclipse.ui.cocoa.fullscreenWindow</code>.
