Editor's Note

The latest annual Eclipse release train is here! This year, it's called Eclipse Oxygen (name voted for by the Eclipse Community).

The cool kid this time around is LSP, which stands for Language Server Protocol. There was so much to say about it, we decided to dedicate an entire Eclipse Newsletter to LSP last month. Read all about it thanks various technical experts who contributed 8 great articles.

There are many other new features and capabilities included in the Eclipse Oxygen Simultaneous Release. Scroll down to read about the changes and updates of debugging tools for Java developers, modeling with Eclipse Sirius 5.0.0, and graphical editing with Eclipse GEF 5.0.0. Discover what's new in the world of Linux tools, testing tools, and what's been happening in the world of PHP development in the Eclipse IDE.

For details on all the 83 projects included in the Eclipse Oxygen release, visit:

Remember to propose a talk for EclipseCon Europe 2017, taking place on Oct 24-26, in Ludwigsburg, Germany. The submission deadline is July 17.

Happy coding!
