    The Eclipse foundation has released version 3.4 of the Eclipse IDE, codenamed "Ganymede". It can be used for many different types of development, but its focus is on Java. Get it here.

    Is it still stupidly slow?

    Just tried it out. Wow, startup time has dramatically improved over Europa. It now starts in about 3 seconds. Europa took about 10 seconds to start on my MacBook Pro.

    For those unaware, the Eclipse IDE has plugins for c++, python, php, ruby, and recently the Android platform. Eclipse, IMHO, takes the opposite approach of XCode providing lots of functionality upfront, including impressive refactoring capabilities, debugging, and more.

    After switching from Linux to Mac, I was quite impressed with the integration of Eclipse (3.3) on Mac OS X. Eclipse uses SWT to give the platform a native look on each OS. For the mac, it uses Carbon. However, with next year's release (3.5), it looks like they're porting it over to Cocoa.
