Eclipse Galileo is out (1 year since Ganymede)

I was talking with someone recently and he told me he was using eclipse 3.3...
I'm using eclipse 3.4.

I told him, he should update since eclipse releases are not so frequent and just a minor number change is actually many months of efforts...

But I didn't know if it was 2, 4 or 6 months.

Well it turn out it's actually 1 year excatly between releases!

So now that Galileo is out you should really update your eclipse version or you'll have a 2 year old software ;)

I think many people don't update eclipse that often because of the quality of it, there is so few bugs that you don't feel the urge to update (my 2 cents)

Release Date Platform version Projects
Eclipse 3.0 28 June 2004 3.0
