Eclipse Platform - Rise and shine


Join this talk to hear what the Eclipse Platform team is currently doing.

- the smart import wizard which "just knows" what you want to import
- new UI enhancements like a full screen editing mode and automatic font size adjustments
- performance enhancements in various areas
- Substring and Postfix code completion in JDT
- Gradle support for Eclipse
- and much more....

In this talk the current improvements in the development and contribution process of the Eclipse platform are also covered.

I'm wondering about the focus "Platform": should we team up for a (separate) JDT N&N (I do have some material but not enough for a full talk)? I believe a separate talk about Gradle/Buildship has already been submitted.

Stephan, no thanks. The stuff of JDT I will cover is the Gsoc I'm helping with. Bringing in more JDT would not fit into the time slot.
