    Eclipse 2020-06 has been launched on June 17th and it brings a really good set of goodies (See details here) and while DevStyle dark themes work generally fine with this version of Eclipse, there are some bad graphic issues with light themes.

    We are currently working on making DevStyle fully compatible with Eclipse 2020-06 with an estimated release in the next couple of weeks. Please stay tuned.

    Cheers!

    Hi Aaron,

    dark themes are also affected, e.g. there’s no focus on the content assist popup.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for pointing it out @spaulding! Yeah, I have noticed this is broken on the Eclipse Dark theme as well. But of course, we will see if there’s anything we can do at DevStyle side to fix it.

    Thanks!

    By the way, the bug report tracking the focus issue in the Eclipse Platform is the following: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=562043

    Great news! We have fixed the majority of the compatibility issues with Eclipse 2020-06.

    Fixed:
    – Dark background on light themes.
    – Invisible arrows in trees (included preferences dialog).
    – Selection colors in Tree and Tables, including Content Assist focus.
    – Menu bar background color to match the DevStyle theme.

    We are planning to release these and other fixes in a DevStyle update by the beginning of the next week. However, it would be really helpful if we can get early feedback from users who want to test a patch. To try this patch out follow the instructions:

    1. Shut down Eclipse
    2. Download and extract the attached plugins.zip file
    3. Copy over the jar file into your eclipse/plugins/ directory and make sure you override the other one with the same name.
    NOTE: If there was no existing jar with the same name the patch won’t work. If you installed Eclipse using the oomph installer the default location for the plugins folder is <home>/.p2/pool/plugins/.
    3. Edit the eclipse/eclipse.ini file by adding -clean as a new line at the very top.
    4. Start Eclipse. By this point, it should already take the fixes.
    5. Remove the -clean line from eclipse.ini as it will no longer be needed (slows down startup).

    Please share your early experiences and confirm if the fixes work for you.

    Thanks!

    Awesome work!
    I installed the patch and it works great. Content Assist focus is back, variables in the debugger are visible again (before it was kinda black in black), …

    Will report back if I find any issues.

    Stay healthy!

    I’m happy to announce that DevStyle 2020.7.20 update is out now! It contains fixes for compatibility issues in Eclipse 2020-06 and other goodies 😀 If DevStyle didn’t update automatically you can do Help > Check for updates in your IDE to get the update.

    Thank you guys for your feedback!
