MyEclipse 2016 CI 0 is the first release built on Eclipse Mars, with refreshed software integrations across the product. We now also include a command-line terminal within MyEclipse, for easy access to a local console or a remote shell. PhoneGap support is currently not a part of this release. MyEclipse 2016 ships with, and requires Java 8 to run.
Included in this release:
- Eclipse Mars
- Command-line Terminal
- Java 8
- PhoneGap Support N/A
MyEclipse is now built on Eclipse Mars 1 (4.5.1). Beyond upgrading the base version of Eclipse, we’ve also refreshed integrations and updated to new versions of third party tooling that MyEclipse is built on, such as STS, m2e, BIRT, Webtools, eGit, etc.
The Mars integration brings in hardcore Java enhancements like improved compiler performance and better support for Lambda expressions, a better looking UI with support for today’s high resolution displays, and several performance and usability fixes across the board.
If you’ve ever wanted to jump to the command-line but find leaving MyEclipse disruptive, you’ll be happy with our new integrated command-line support. MyEclipse now includes the TM Terminal plugin, which supports both local consoles as well as remote shells.
Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a local command prompt. Previous sessions are remembered and automatically reconnect on restart.
This release of MyEclipse ships with, and runs on Java 8. While 2015 did support Java 8 development, you had to install a Java 8 JDK / JRE separately; with 2016, the Java 8 JDK is available with the product and will be the default JDK for new workspaces.
PhoneGap Support N/A
At Genuitec, we are always evaluating the latest trends. In 2016, we are looking to better support the needs of the Enterprise Mobile developer. In light of these upcoming changes, PhoneGap support has not been included with the 2016 CI stream, but you can continue to use the PhoneGap tooling in MyEclipse 2015. We will roll out our new 2016 Mobile story when we release MyEclipse 2016 Stable 1.0.
