The Eclipse Photon simultaneous release is on its finishing lane and will be available shortly after EclipseCon France on June 27th 2018. Its heart, the Eclipse Platform, comes this year with a plethora of new features and improvements that will continue the Eclipse IDE keeping the #1 flexible, scalable and most performing IDE!
This session will give a guided tour through the new features and changes in Eclipse Photon. Due to the vast amount of noteworthy stuff the focus of this talk is on the Eclipse Platform Project, covering JDT only roughly and leaving JDT details to a separate talk at ECF. You will see usability improvements, useful new API for platform developers and neat features for users. Besides visible changes, the platform project team has paid special attention on stability, performance and resource consumption tuning. In this talk, I will give some insights how the team has worked on that.
Come and see the incredible achievements the platform team and its growing number of contributors made to bring you the best Eclipse IDE ever!
