Yesterday, Oxygen.2 has been released, a new version of the Eclipse IDE and platform. It contains many useful improvements, so it is worth to update.
One small but useful improvement we especially like is the enhanced EGit staging view. It provides new buttons to stage and unstage files (selected one or all), as well as to sort the unstaged changes. Further, the context menu directly allows to ignore files, assume them to be unchanged and even directly delete them.
Futher improvements, e.g. for Java 9 support are summarized in the following video provided by Holger Voormann:
In case you use our EclipseSource Oomph profile (see here for more details), you should get a notification and Oomph will apply the update automatically. If you do not get the notification, just navigate to the menu entry “Help” => “Perform Set-Up Task”.
This will automatically update all plugins to Oxygen, but keep all existing settings untouched.
Have fun with Oxygen.2!
