Eclipse IDE improvements: Photon is followed by 2018-09

With the first quarterly simultaneous release the naming scheme was changed: Photon, which was released in June, is followed by 2018-09 in September now. Many thanks to all the heroes who made the Eclipse IDE a bit better again!

I have made two short videos each for Photon three months ago and now for 2018-09, showing Eclipse IDE improvements in action: one about general and Git improvements and the other exclusively for Java developers. Below the two videos, you will find a list of the improvements with time stamps and links to details. If you dislike something, let me know what you want me to change next time (for example, if you prefer one longer video like before instead of several short videos like the current ones).

Several Eclipse 2018-09 IDE packages are available for download. Since Photon there has existed an Latest Eclipse Release update site in Window > Preferences: Install/Update > Available Software Sites. If you enable it, you can upgrade to 2018-09 via Help > Check for Updates. If automatic updates (Window > Preferences: Install/Update > Automatic Updates) have not been disabled, a dialog will ask you on December 19 if you want to upgrade to 2018-12.
