API Baselines Preferences

The following preferences can be set using the Opens the API Baselines preference page Plug-in Development > API Baselines preference page.

An API baseline defines the state you want to compare your development workspace bundles against for the purposes of binary compatibility, bundle version numbers, and @since tags. For example, if you are developing bundles for Eclipse 3.4, you could use Eclipse 3.3 as your baseline.
