Eclipse 3.6 SR2 is out

Eclipse Helios 3.6 SR2 has been released. Get yours at the usual place.

The bug that was causing code assist freezes with large JavaDoc files is supposed to be fixed, but I would not know, because I got so used to having Android source installed! Great for exploring how things work, especially with Eclipse’s fast and easy way to open any Java class.

Try this (if you have the sources installed, pre my earlier posts): press Ctrl+Shift+T, enter “Activity”, and press Ok.

I’m already running this new Eclipse version, with the memory limit increased to 512 MB through eclipse.ini:

-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.1.1.R36x_v20101122_1400.jar
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.win32.win32.x86_1.1.2.R36x_v20101222
-product
org.eclipse.epp.package.java.product
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
512M
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
512m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5
-Xms40m
-Xmx512m

Still on my mental to-do list: to try 64-bit Java and Eclipse (I’m running Windows 7 64-bit). The rest of my specs: Intel i860 CPU, 4 Gb of RAM, and a Corsair V128 SSD.
