The Eclipse Foundation on Monday announced the release of the latest version of the Eclipse platform.

The Ottawa-based foundation announced Release 3.0 of the Eclipse platform, which adds enhancements that improve ease of use, as well as interoperability, scalability and performance of the open-source development platform, foundation officials said.

Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, said Eclipse 3.0 features four major themes: improvements to the Java IDE (integrated development environment); support for a rich client platform; support for the SWT (Standard Widget Toolkit) graphical user interface technologies; and the concurrent release of two companion projects—the C/C++ Development Tools and Hyades projects—to deliver an application performance monitoring and optimization solution for Eclipse.
