Eclipse 4.4.2 is a bug fix release, so no new features have been added. However, some really great fixes have been introduced.
- Improved Build Time After MANIFEST.MF Changes - For anybody who writes plugins, this bug fix is going to revolutionize your life. Gone are the days of making a change and then going to get a cup of coffee!
- Java Code Completion With Lambdas and Anonymous Classes - Java 1.8 users rejoice! Code assist now works when you've got both lambda expressions and anonymous classes in the same class. There are a bunch more fixes for 1.8 too, search Bugzilla for [1.8].
- Fixed Big SWT Trees to No Longer Crash Eclipse - SWT trees have long had issues; they're one of the more complicated widgets out there. With this fix, Eclipse gets that much more stable! And it's not just this fix, 446534 addresses this too!
