Eclipse Juno Milestone 5, available for download

It’s never to early to start thinking of a Valentines Day gift, and what better gift than that of an excellent IDE!  The Eclipse and Equinox teams are happy to announce that Eclipse Juno Milestone 5 is available for Download.

As I hope everyone is aware, Juno (Coming Summer 2012) is an important release for Eclipse. It represents the transition from an Eclipse 3.x platform to 4.x.  If you plan on shipping products based on Eclipse Juno, make sure you start testing NOW!  This milestone has a number of noteworthy items including:

A great deal of static analysis checks
Null field checks

And more resource leak detection:

There are also some notable UI improvements such as editor navigation arrows:

Or better yet, download the milestone and TEST YOUR PLUGINS!

    Does it support The Android Development Plugin, yet?

    Is there a particular bug or feature missing that’s causing the ADT not to run on the 4.x platform? If so, it would be good to make sure the the platform team is aware of this. Otherwise, this sounds like it might be a better question for the ADT developers to make sure they are planning on support Eclipse 4.x this year.

    Technically that’s Eclipse 4.2M5. Juno M5, the packages, will arrive shortly.
