The last release of JSDT was version 3.7.0, in June 2015. Version 3.8.0 has an announced date of June 22, 2016.
The JSON editor offers content assist and syntax coloring to make creation of data structures easier. The new JSDT includes support for Gulp and Grunt for automated task scheduling and running.
Developers will be able to create and debug Node.js applications as well as code to run in browsers. When working with Node.js, developers can either use the global installation or a custom installation. They can even switch among multiple versions of Node when it''s necessary for testing.
Eclipse will support npm, the Node.js package manager, as well as Bower, which runs under Node to extend package support to client code.
Developers who like Eclipse but have wandered away from it because it had stagnated should take a look at the Neon release and decide whether it''s time to come back.
