What's New in Rodin 1.2?

TODO: List here the new features and improvements.

  • Migration to Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo)


  • It is recommended to run the Rodin platform with a Java 1.5 Runtime Environment.
  • Only a 32-bit version of the Rodin platform is provided. Some optional libraries dedicated to 32-bit support may be required in order to run it on a 64-bit OS. Moreover, you will have to install a 32-bit Java Virtual Machine (JVM), and then to set the -vm option to make sure that Rodin is run with the correct JVM.
eg. /usr/local/rodin/rodin -vm /usr/lib/jvm/ia32-java-1.5.0-sun/bin/java (You have to adjust paths to your system.)
