Eclipse Juno has arrived.

Continuing with the tradition of yearly June releases, Eclipse rolled out its latest offering - Juno. While as always there are a significant number of bug fixes and features, Juno mainly targets the Eclipse Development community by base lining the current version as the mainstream target platform for RCP development.
Another interesting offering is the Code Recommenders that promises to made coding 'smarter' by offering "by means of intelligent code completion, extended javadocs, smart bug detectors, stacktrace search engines and others...". While it would be unfair to expect an immediate performance boost from the Code Recommender feature, it can be regarded as a major stepping stone towards integrating coding standards and quality benchmarks within the IDE.
