There's a lot of cool new stuff but also some problems.

I'm still running v2.1.1 because most of the plug-ins I find valuable only support that build.
In contacting the vendors, they say until the "offical" v3 is released, they won't be working on support.
Forget the Mx build process, release v3 and start on v3.1 or whatever so the plug-in people can begin supporting the platform.
No more new features, just release the friggin v3 so we can move on.

That's the problem with most open source projects, extremely long release cycles (not counting the countless release candidates of betas of release candidates of alphas).

Actually since M7, the Eclipse team strives to make 3.0 fully downward compatible to 2.x regarding plugins. In M8, most of the 2.x plugins I tried seem to work without problems.

So, Ilja, what are your thoughts about M8?
