Eclipse Oxygen.3 IDE Improvements: Java, Gradle and PHP [VIDEO]
Big improvements and bug fixes are afoot in Eclipse Oxygen.3. If you want to see what’s new, this video from Holger Voormann explains some of the changes in Eclipse Oxygen.3, including notable improvements to Java, Gradle, and PHP.
We’re only a few months away from Eclipse Photon (it should arrive on June 27, 2018!) but we’re still super excited about Eclipse Oxygen and everything this IDE has to offer developers.
In what is now a regular series, Holger Voormann has created another video about the Eclipse Oxygen IDE Improvements. In the first installment, Voormann went over the Oxygen.1a IDE Improvements for Java 9, JUnit 5, General, Gradle, and PHP. Last time, he explained some of the IDE improvements for Oxygen.2, including the changes to the Java IDE, Git and C/C++.
Now, that Eclipse Oxygen.3 is out, he’s back with another video in this helpful series!
