The Eclipse Foundation has released the latest update to its flagship open source IDE and related tools. Codenamed Photon, this release train includes 85 different projects with more than 73 million lines of code. It offers support for Rust, better C# editing and debugging capabilities, support for Java 10 and Java EE 8, and dark theme improvements. It also adds support for more programming languages through Language Server Protocol plugins.
“With new language adoption happening at a faster rate, LSP-based plugins will take the Eclipse IDE’s proven extensibility to the next level,” said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. “Congratulations to all of the committers, projects, and Foundation staff that made the Eclipse Photon simultaneous release possible.”
