While milestone releases are often packed with fun new tools, this Christmas present Milestone really is special.

Of course there is also a number of new goodies too, such as an Early access port of SWT to GTK3:

Quick assist for combining strings:

And new Quick Fixes in PDE for Package Imports:

Checkout the entire New and Noteworthy:, or get your copy of Milestone 4 and give the gift that keeps on giving:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

    Looking forward to the performance improvements! Working with Eclipse 4.2.1 requires at least one restart every few days otherwise it gets painful slow… 🙁
