Eclipse 3.2 Release Candidate 1 Now Released

JUnit 4 Support Due to be Added in RC2

Eclipse 3.2 RC1 is out! Author and software consultant R. J. Lorimer (pictured) comments : 'Things are certainly slowing down in the realm of 'new features', but now things start to look really shiny and pretty for the upcoming final drop.'

The trend toward performance improvements in Eclipse JDT for M6/RC0 is definitely continuing into RC1, particularly in the Java development tools, Lorimer adds.

By way of evidence he adduces some quotes from the weekly planning notes:

Platform/JDT Text
(...)
- performance work
- reduced AST creation
- reduced updating of marker ruler actions


JDT UI
(...)
- bug fixing and performance improvements for text search


JDT Core
(...)
- performance work: faster reconciling of large editor contents

APT
(...)
- perf improvements
- improve time for fetching types
