Oxygen.1a (4.7.1a) was released two weeks after Oxygen.1 (4.7.1) on October 11, 2017. Oxygen.1 includes bug fixes and minor improvements. Since Oxygen.1a, the Eclipse IDE runs out of the box with Java 9 and supports development for Java 9 as well as testing with JUnit 5. Many thanks to all of you who have contributed in any way.

As usual, I made a short video that shows some improvements in action:
