Last week, Eclipse 2019-06 has been released, a new version of the Eclipse IDE and platform. The first notable improvement is the launch speed, especially if you run it with newer Java versions. So we recommend reviewing the Java JVM used to run Eclipse (not necessarily the same as used for compiling projects) and update e.g. to Java 11. Further, with 2019-06, you can launch Eclipse with a selected workspace directly from command line like you might be used to using VS Code just like this:
Besides that, Eclipse 2019-06 contains many additional useful improvements. Holger Voormann provides once more great videos summarizing the improvements in the Java IDE, the platform and in EGit, which we are happy to share (please see below)
As always, 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 2019-06, but keep all existing settings untouched.
Have fun with Eclipse 2019-06!
