Dispointed with Eclipse Ganymede

Well, Eclipse Ganymede did released on 25th June 2008, however for two sub projects that I am interested, STP and Subversive, some of the component of the STP are still on 0.8 and 0.9 version, and for Subversive, it's still on the 0.7.1, they did not meet the promise of the 1.o final version.

The STP of Ganymede -- CXF included

Eclipse 3.4 will be released soon at the end of this month, There are several features that I am quite interested:

1. New Ganymede sub project, SOA tool project (STP) includes the CXF Web Service framework, it's really a cool feature.

2. P2, the new update manager, finally Eclipse starts to organize its plugins. :)

3. Refactor methods includes a new "Extract Class".

4. The SVN client is built in as a Eclipse sub project. It seems that we don't need to download the subclipse anymore.

When I began to use Eclipse 2.o, it's in 2003. Now it's 2008, the Eclipse version is only 3.4(soon). It seems that Eclipse version number growing is not so fast. :)
