<div class="paragraph">
<p>Eclipse/SWT has dropped support for the Windows XP Operating System and other Windows versions older than Windows Vista. Microsoft support for Windows XP, including security updates, ended in April 2014 and Windows XP has not been listed as a target environment for the Eclipse Platform for several years.</p>

<div class="paragraph">
<p>Reading the source code is the task developers perform the most during coding. So text editors must assist the user as good as possible with that.</p>
</div>
<div class="paragraph">
<p>On macOS Eclipse Photon now uses the "Menlo" font as the default text font, which does also contain bold font faces. This increases readability in source code editors using bold font faces:</p>

<p>Caret performance on the SWT GTK3 port has been enhanced to allow for smoother drawing. Previously the caret stuttered when moved or when other controls in the same shell were manipulated. Now the caret moves smoothly and blinks at a consistent rate.</p>

<p>Eclipse SWT on GTK3.14+ now supports the use of GTK_THEME as an environment variable.

</li>
<li>
<p>Updated significant features to support Java Modules, such as compiler, search and many editor features.</p>
</li>
</ul>
</div>
<div class="paragraph">
<p><strong>Note:</strong> It is not mandatory to run Eclipse with Java Runtime 9 to get the Java 9 support. However, a Java runtime 9 is required to be on a project&#8217;s build path to compile a modular project against the system modules.</p>
</div>
<div class="ulist">
<ul>
<li>
<p>When a Java Runtime 9 is added to a project&#8217;s build path, the system modules are listed under the System library in the package explorer:</p>

</div>

<p>An existing non-modular Java project can be quickly converted to a module by creating a module-info.java for that project. This feature can be availed once the project has been moved to compliance 9:</p>
<div class="imageblock">
<div class="content">

<p>Once an entry has been added to a project&#8217;s module path, its contents and encapsulation properties can further be modified by double-clicking on the <strong>Is modular</strong> node (or using the <strong>Edit</strong> button while <strong>Is modular</strong> is selected):</p>
<div class="ulist">
<ul>
<li>
<p>On the <strong>Contents</strong> tab individual modules inside a container like <strong>JRE System Library</strong> can be included or excluded by moving the module from left-to-right or vice versa.

<p>To invoke the regular expression search from the search field under Java Search, start the expression with "/r " i.e, a slash '/', the letter 'r' and a blank ' ' (not tab) followed by a regex, an example of which is shown below:</p>

<div class="imageblock">
<div class="content">
<img src="./images/mod.regex.trap.png" alt="Trapdoor for regular expression module declaration search">
</div>
</div>
<div class="paragraph">
<p>In the above example, all the characters trailing "/r " form a Java regular expression to denote a module name which starts with zero or more 'n&#8217;s followed by the string ".ver" and followed again by zero or more number of arbitrary characters.</p>
</div>
<div class="paragraph">
<p>Another example would be to search for all modules that start with <code>java.x</code> followed by zero or more characters which is given by the regular expression <code>/r java\.x.*</code> - note the backslash for . to consider this as a "normal" character instead of the special regex].</p>
</div>
<div class="paragraph">
<p>Yet another example would be search for all module names that start with j followed by zero or more characters and ending with .xml which in regex language translates to <code>/r j.*\.xml</code>. Please note that here the first '.' is the special regex character while the second '.' is escaped to denote that this is a normal character.</p>
</div>
<div class="paragraph">
<p><strong>Note:</strong> You should use this only for <strong>Declarations</strong> search for modules as it is not implemented for module references. Selecting <strong>All occurrences</strong> in conjunction with regex will default to finding only the Declarations matching the regex ignoring the references.</p>

<p>If a module is annotated with <code>@NonNullByDefault</code>, the compiler will interpret this as the global default for all types in this module: <code>@org.eclipse.jdt.annotation.NonNullByDefault</code><br>

<p>Note, however, that this requires an annotation type declared with target <code>ElementType.MODULE</code>.
