This session takes a look back on the past year and 4 releases of the Eclipse Platform. I will give some insights on the work being done on the platform projects. Besides demonstrating some added features I will take a look behind the scenes:
- Who is currently involved in the development of the Platform?
- How active is the user and contributor community involved?
- Which improvements have been made in regards to performance and usability?
Since the Eclipse IDE 2020-09 is requiring Java 11 the first time as runtime environment I will show where this has been leveraged during the current release development and how this can be expected to evolve.
