Version 4.7.2-202001271244 is a maintenance release to fix the issue related to the change introduced by the update to https for the CMSIS Pack index.
- 97dd134b, 4a6e7df8 - [#373] in early January 2020, Arm/Keil relocated the server storing the CMSIS Packs index to the cloud and changed the URL to https, leaving a http redirect in the previous location. The Java HttpURLConnection class used to download the index does handle some redirections, but those from http to https are not supported, and attempts to refresh the index failed. The new URL was updated in the C/C++ > MCU Packages > Repositories preferences page, and also redirection was implemented in code.
For convenience, this version of the plug-ins is also available as an Eclipse package:
- GNU MCU Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers 2019-12 20200127 which packs together the 2019-12 version (Eclipse 4.14) of the Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers standard distribution with the GNU MCU Eclipse plug-ins.
