From Our Roots to Robots: The Ever-Evolving Open Source World

From Our Roots to Robots:
The Ever-Evolving Open Source World

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Eclipse IDE, and it’s still going strong. The Eclipse IDE 2021-06 simultaneous release is out, and we recently announced the creation of the Eclipse IDE Working Group to guide the IDE’s future.
At the same time, we’re seeing huge strides forward in newer projects hosted at the Eclipse Foundation, particularly in areas such as automotive, IoT and edge, cloud development tools, and cloud native Java.
This month, we look at the latest features in the project that started it all — the Eclipse IDE. We also share stories about Eclipse iceoryx, which is integrated into the Robot Operating System (ROS) 2 and other frameworks, and the open source software that’s driving autonomous racecars.
Happy reading,
Thabang Mashologu
