Compared with the previous version, the open source Eclipse 2019-03 IDE desktop, now released for Java, C / C ++, PHP, Rust and other programming languages brings some fundamental revisions. In the release, Git, which is an integral part of all IDE packages, can now sign commits with a PGP key. Speed improvements are notable among other things with commits with thousands of changes.
Dark Theme, the dark mode of Eclipse, has been significantly improved on the macOS version and now looks really good. There are also improvements, for example, in the startup settings. Several environment variables can be copied and pasted together instead of individually.
Java 12 support for after installation
Support for Java 12 is missing on the first day after the release of the Java 12 IDE, but can be installed in the Eclipse Marketplace. Official support for Java 12 is planned for the next release (Eclipse 2019-06) in June.
Updated from version 5.3.1 to version 5.4, on the other hand, the JUnit integrated Java test framework and support for it. In addition, Java developers can expect finer granular configuration options for formatting.
Wild Web Developer rides to the future of the LSP
The LSP is being supported by more and more IDEs and publishers. Tasks such as autocomplete suggestions are outsourced by the IDE or the publisher through the standardized protocol for a locally installed application, the Language Server. With the same Language Server, support for a specific programming language or file format can be obtained for a variety of IDEs and editors that support LSP.
