Re: [ide-dev] Highlights for 2020-12 landing page

Hi Lakshmi,

Thanks for sharing.

In my view, the top 5 of the 2020-12 release:

1. Built-in Java 15 support ("built-in" since in 2020-09 Java 15 was already available via the Marketplace; if I understand it correctly, when using Maven or Gradle, JUnit 5.7 behaves in 2020-12 exactly the same as it did in 2020-09)

2. Java 15 included: the two most popular IDE packages, "Eclipse IDE for Java Developers" and "Eclipse IDE for Enterprise Java Developers", are shipped with Java 15 now (thanks to JustJ)

3. New IDE package: "Eclipse IDE for Embedded C/C++ Developers" targeting ARM and RISC-V (this increases the total number of provided IDE packages to 14)

4. Java IDE with 25 new clean-up functions (can be automatically applied on save as so-called "Save Actions" or manually on one or more source files)

5. New "System" theme for Windows, Linux and macOS which is not enabled by default and improved "Light" theme for macOS

I am currently working on my next Eclipse Java IDE improvements video. Please tell me if I have something missed or wrong:
