In September, Eclipse 2018-09 has been released, a new version of the Eclipse IDE and platform. It contains many useful improvements, so it is worth to update. It is the first release following the new release cycle with four equal releases per year. One of many noteworthy extensions is the new minimap view, which provides a complete overview of opened documents. It allows to browse files more efficiently and due to showing the selection, also identifying occurrences of certain expressions, e.g. usages of fields.
Further general improvements of the Eclipse 2018-09 IDE are summarized in the following video, Git and Platform improvements in a separate video below. Both are provided by Holger Voormann, whom we want to thank you once again for this great work!
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 Photon, but keep all existing settings untouched.
Have fun with Eclipse 2018-09!
