Eclipse kepler

I downloaded eclipse kepler today and tested it on my laptop.

Improved things:

  1. Memory usage is much less, and the IDE is more responsive. Juno was already good, but kepler uses even less memory.
  2. Highlighting the token under the cursor used to hang in Juno. Now it works without hanging in kepler.
  3. Javascript editor is improved. Some auto completion is implemented when ctrl+space is clicked.

Things that did not get fixed:

  1. Auto format on save for javascript still does not work
  2. The javascript formatter is still way behind the java one.

I didn’t test any JEE like JSF or JSP features. I also was not interested that much in HTML5 editing, even though I think I will try soon.
