Finally upgrading to 3.2, I found a rather wonderful page (are they making up for lost time, all the crappy docs and impossible-to-understand download pages by making exceptional release notes? Whatever the reason, it's fantastic docs) which I thought I'd share:

http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/R-3.2-200606291905/new_noteworthy/eclipse-news-part2.html

It has a list of the most exciting new features they've added for java dev in 3.2, with *screenshots* and info telling you how to invoke each one (which menu, etc) and what they each do.

malloc will be first against the wall when the revolution comes...

came from 3.1 M8, and installed 3.2...

Nothing but annoying bugs!

I can't click on stacktrace-links anymore, i get an error-dialog.

Automatic folding is screwed, often the beginning of the file completely disappears when
folding anonymous-inner-classes, can't unfold it and have to close->open the the file again.

It feels much slower... can now quickly check a few websites after pressing F11... it takes seconds!

..

The bugs in 3.1 M8 were annoying too, but 3.2 beats it.

I've just recently upgraded to the latest stable build of 3.3 (3.3M2) and I've found it bug-free so far, maybe try that instead?

Ditto on the 3.2 experience, nothing but bugs here.

Time to try 3.3

Anti-ditto on the 3.2 bugs for me. I've been using 3.2.0 Build I20060602-1317 for ages now and had no problems. Stacktraces are clickable, code-folding seems fine. It Just Works. (Running on Linux, if that makes a difference)

I'm a sucker for new stuff though, so 3.3 is downloading now (cheers for the heads-up Orangy Tang).

My Love for Eclipse is tempered only by the realisation that I'll never be able code effectively without it.

edit: Found the first bug with 3.3 - The splash screen says 3.2 Roll Eyes

eclipse 3.2 trouble free here. Seems odd that some find it bug free, and some riddled. Does anyone find just a couple of bugs? Smiley

As much as I hate to say it, I think it may be Windows related. Only people I know who found lots of bugs are on windows. The only ones I've heard of that find it great are on linux?

I use Eclipse 3.2.0 about 10-12 hours a day on Windows, no bugs that I know of. Perhaps it has something to do with plugins and 3.1-->3.2 ?

I seem to be having issues as well.
Memory leaks eating up 1.8GB swap and all system memory.

These are rare though, other than that Eclipse 3.2 is working for me quite well.

I keep having horrendous problems with 3.2. Sometimes it just won't startup anymore, and I have to delete lots of meta files. Then when I do get it to startup again I lose the references to my project, so I have to rebuild them again and its a damn pain. I also can't follow stack traces, but I can jump to source with my junit tests (?). I am running it on linux off my uni network (so I don't really get much freedom to mess about with the instalation, or choose a different IDE).

You could install a working version in your home directory. Edit your PATH to find that first and the job's a good 'un.

I am afraid. No windows 64 bit support  Sad. So I can't use eclipse anymore (just installed a fresh XP pro 64 system last week without checking the eclipse downloads). But i have to admit that I'm currently very happy with the netbeans 6 builds.

So... the net of this is that 64-bit Eclipse requires a 64-bit JRE.

----
anyways if 3.1  64bit version is avail it would be kinda wierd that there would be no 64 bit version for 3.2

It's harder to read code than to write it. - it's even harder to write readable code.

also check the bottom where it saids:

The above features are just the ones that are new since the previous milestone build. Summaries for earlier 3.3 milestone builds:

    * New for Eclipse 3.3 milestone build M4 (December 15, 2006)
    * New for Eclipse 3.3 milestone build M3 (November 3, 2006)
    * New for Eclipse 3.3 milestone build M2 (September 22, 2006)
    * New for Eclipse 3.3 milestone build M1 (August 10, 2006)
those are links I'm to lazy to copy them all.

There are currently just 64bit builds for linux available. The reason for that is the SWT code. I can start eclipse on winXP64 but many widgets (e. g. Trees) won't be painted.

Sounds like you should all be using Netbeans!  Smiley  5.5 is very good (and bug free!)
