Eclipse 3.0 M8 Released

Eight milestone of Eclipse 3.0 is out.  Most notable among new features and changes in this release are public API for webform-like UI and UI style changes.  I love the webform UI but I am not too fond of some of the UI changes.  It's as if Eclipse team hired a new UI designer who is trying to turn Eclipse 3.0 into a proving ground of sort, using curves where none is needed, adding color accents to icons unevenly, etc.

One skill every artist and designers must have is knowing when to stop.  What the Eclipse 3.0 team is trying to do with these frivolous UI changes amounts to putting lace on jock straps.
