CDT 8.8 will be released on September 25th, 2015 as part of the Eclipse Mars SR1 release. It requires platform 4.5 or newer.
When displaying search results in the Search View, for results inside a class method, the name of the class is now displayed in addition to the name of the method:
The parser now supports User-defined literals.
C/C++ Stand-alone Debugger package (RCP) for Windows
The C/C++ Stand-alone Debugger RCP is now available for Windows (previously Linux only). Once extracted, it can be started by simply launching the cdtdebug.exe executable. This new package can be downloaded from the CDT downloads page.
Line breakpoints can now be created from the Breakpoints View menu.
Once triggered, the different properties of the breakpoint can be set. In this scenario, the file to which the breakpoint should apply can also be set; there are buttons to browse the Workspace, or the File System.

More readable Disassembly view
The Disassembly view now better spaces the instructions, which makes them easier to read.
This enhancement was a contribution from Jon Beniston through Bug 417895.
DSF-GDB service extensibility improvement
Each DSF-GDB service provided by CDT now has a top-level class GDB<service>_HEAD which can be found under
Extenders that want to focus on the latest GDB version are encouraged to subclass these new *_HEAD classes for their special needs. This will allow them to always extend the most recent version of the service. For example, if an extender chooses to use GDBRunControl_NS_HEAD, if GDBRunControl_7_9_NS is added to CDT, the GDBRunControl_NS_HEAD class will be changed in CDT to extend this new GDBRunControl_7_9_NS instead of the previous version, therefore automatically allowing extenders to be extending the new class.
