The Eclipse team have just released version 3.4 of their increasingly popular open development system, as part of their annual Ganymede release.
There are several new features in this release: an updated user-interface for updates which will automatically download dependencies when a component is selected (meaning that it is no longer necessary for the user to find dependencies for themselves); a new interface for problems, bookmarks and tasks view, which allows predefined filters on errors and warnings; the ability to tell eclipse to automatically use the system's proxy settings and an improved text search are just a few of them, and the full list of features is available here.
Already there have been a number of reviews published. Revert to Console was quite critical of the release, noting that the overall memory footprint of eclipse has grown, that the new release is slower and overall it has become rather complex. WillCode4Beer's review was more positive, although still marked the release down in a number of areas.
