Starting from 4.28.0.Final, there will be no more .AM1 releases. The .Final releases can be now scheduled close to the Eclipse releases.
As communicated in a previous blog article, the following components are now deprecated:
Openshift CDK Tooling
Openshift Explorer view (already hidden by default) and wizards, targeting Openshift v3
The current openshift Application Explorer view, based on odo v3 is now the default supported tooling.

We changed the backend system used in the usage bundle from Google Analytocs to Segment. This as no impact on how we collected usage inforamtion, neither change the opt-in choice made in previous version of JBossTools.
As always, neither Eclipse nor JBoss will use any information unless a user has opted in, nor is there ever any personal information sent unless it is provided on the Preferences page.
