Holy cow! Is this release full of improvements or what? Yes, indeed it is. For sure this will give us material to be entertained with for days exploring each of them. One thing that caught my attention is that many of these improvements are focused on how to keep us inside the IDE and make the experience as efficient & enjoyable as possible.


How are they doing that? Well, they started by improving their toolbar styling. It definitely helps when we feel like we are working in a more modern environment, so kudos for that.



You can now open images in the Eclipse IDE. Listen, that is great. Whatever helps us to stay focused on coding and not having to open another screen for images and whatnot. I am all up for that.

Terminate and relaunch by holding the Shift Key is definitely an improvement. If we could manage it all just by pressing one button, that would add so much time to my day. I might even go outdoors. No, not really.

They added some nice improvements to Java. But for some reason I was more interested in what they had to add to the Web/JavaScript arena, and I was not disappointed.

Anyway, don’t take my word for it, and see it in action here.

Don’t forget that Secure Delivery Center has it ready for your whole team to start using it. No lines, no waits, nothing. Just a couple clicks and your whole office will be up to date.
