What's New in Eclipse 3.5: Milestone 7

Milestone seven of Eclipse 3.5 is out, and it solves a long-standing annoyance for me with Eclipse, which is that you switch between editor tabs with Ctrl-PgUp and Ctrl-PgDown, but in a multi-tab editor, you switch within the editor with the same keystroke. This leads to weird behaviours like when you want to switch from a Java tab to another Java tab but pass through an XML tab with design/source view and get "trapped" because the keystroke you were using no longer lets you continue.

It also looks like support for cocoa on OS X continues to improve.
