See the original posting on JavaWorld
The latest version of the Eclipse IDE, Luna, has been released today, with support for Java 8 right out of the box — fitting for an IDE that is itself developed in Java.
New releases of Eclipse are announced annually, with the last version, Kepler, having dropped on June 26 of last year. Each year’s product release cycle for the Eclipse Foundation involves upgrades and additions to not just the Eclipse IDE itself, but a whole “train” of projects, tools, and add-ons associated with Eclipse. The current release covers 76 projects and includes 61 million lines of code provided by 340 different committers.
