In June 2015 the new Mars Eclipse version (4.5) will be delivered and, since June 2012, the Eclipse 4 architecture became the official runtime for Eclipse applications.
This talk will explain the new concepts used in Eclipse 4 like : the application model, the E4 dependency injection, the event bus, the CSS engine and some other interesting stuff.
