A lot of changes will still be made and Eclipse doesn't even have an ETA (custom boxes weren't even supposed to make it to Eclipse, but they're there even if it has no coding option, which could make its comeback as well anyway since we all keep asking for that) Then I saw a lot of neophobia. ... and I think that is a large reason why Eclipse is getting so much backlash, because we don't like change.
