This session will give you an update on many of the new features that have been added to Eclipse Platform in the past year. Eclipse now successfully ships with the new release cadence every 3 months, so we will cover the feature set of the past 4 releases.
The new release cycle has also some impact on the development process of Eclipse projects. We will give our learnings on these impacts from the Eclipse Platform’s view point.
In the near past the Eclipse Platform project has successfully acquired and integrated an increasing number of new committers, who are actively helping to improve the code base and assuring the liveliness of the project. We will show the current status of contributions and discuss implications on the review process.
