Eclipse Che logo


2018 has been a busy year already, and we’re not even halfway through.  Eclipse Che 6 brought team and enterprise features including multi-user and multi-tenancy as well as a large number of other great capabilities (you can read all about it in our Che 6 release post).

We followed Che 6 GA with already 4 minor releases and the community worked hard in order to add even more capabilities:

  • Helm chart for Kubernetes deployment
  • C/C++ intellisense with integration of ClangD
  • Recover capabilities for OpenShift/Kubernetes
  • And almost 150 bug fixes

Developing microservices using Eclipse Che

With Che 6, the Che server and workspaces can be run as workloads on Kubernetes or OpenShift. What’s very exciting about this is that you can finally run your production pods/containers in “dev mode” so you’re working with the images as used in production.

In this video, Red Hat’s Eugene Ivantsov shows how he configured his Che workspace to build, run, and develop a multi-pod application with Eclipse Che.

Roadmap 2018

We split the roadmap into 4 goals:

  • Plugins: Features to drive further growth in the Che ecosystem.
  • Updates to the IDE to increase the joy of development.
  • Improvements to workspace creation and tool interaction to better support cloud-native applications.
  • Enterprises: Features to support large scale use of Che.

If you’d like to know more about these take a look at the Eclipse Che roadmap on our wiki.
