    Default Eclipse Helios!

    I know I'm a little dated on this, but who's excited for/used the new Eclipse Helios?

    It was released on June 26, 2010 and after downloading it and running through some of the features, it looks pretty sweet

    I'll be sure to fill you guys in on the new features I find after playing around with it for a bit

    Download link: Eclipse Downloads

    some neat features i've found already (there are tons more, many java-specific, even more general eclipse toolkit features):

    Ability to "not format" sections of code when using the auto-formatter.
    Improved code validity checker features.
    New debugging toys, err tools.

    Yeah Helios is looking pretty good, just installed it at work the other week but had it installed at home for a couple of months now, been running the release candidates because I wanted a 64 bit build of eclipse.

    So far it looks really nice, the update feature has changed slightly now as well.

    Yeah, I remember trying to find the 64-bit windows builds for old Eclipse versions was a maze navigating through the eclipse website Glad that they've finally put that up on the main download page (they use to only have the linux and mac-osx 64 bit versions on the main download page, kind of odd really)
