Eclipse SDK 4.0 released

Jul 30, 2010

Early adopters only.

Eclipse has released the software development kit for version 4.0, with the advice that only early adopters should download it.

"The 4.0 release is for early adopters that want to test backwards compatibility and migrate their plug-ins and RCP applications," the Eclipse site notes.

Improvements found in Eclipse 4.0 include a model-based interface and a new declarative-based styling mechanism, based on CSS. It's also easier to use discreet application services via the services-oriented programming model. Eclipse 4.0 also features full API binary support for previous platform releases.

Additionally, Eclipse 4.0 features a refreshed workbench layout, simplifying the workspace and reducing clutter. The emphasis on unused tabs has been reduced and a new global search bar has been incorporated. Views and editors can be mixed and matched and even used in tandem.

Most of the SDK is Java code and is independent of an operating system. Source code is required only to reference library-specific facilities.
