No new features was added for this release. All bundles and packages has been refactored to use the org.eclipse.texlipse namespace and  a branding feature was implemented. The project has been prepared for accepting contributions, so there is now an Eclipse Installer profile and a description on how to use it.

How can I connect PDF viewers? I could not make evince work for example in eclipse oxygen (with Texlipse 2.0.0):


running: /usr/bin/evince "/home/ssardina/git/papers/17-HRPlanning.git/main-hrfp-ijcai18.pdf"
viewer> Failed to connect to Mir: Failed to connect to server socket: No such file or directory
viewer> Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused
viewer> Cannot parse arguments: Cannot open display:

Solved by adding an environment variable (DISPLAY to be :0) in the Environment/Viewer section under Preferences for the plugin. :-)

There is also a way to have evince do forward/backward navigation in the pdf.

Thanks for letting us know Sebastian.

I noticed that you've also used the issue tracker at For these kind of things that is the correct approach. This comment system is for details related to the actual release process at the Eclipse Foundation. No harm done though :)
