The only regression I noted is that Eclipse 3.6.2 no longer supports an internal web browser. Ubuntu 11.04 comes with Firefox 4.x, and this is not currently supported by Eclipse SWT.
This thread gave me the hint how to fix it:
- Install package libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 (do not use the newer version libwebkitgtk-3.0-0)
- Add the following to eclipse.ini: -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.UseWebKitGTK=true
- Create a symlink in /usr/lib to satisfy the SWT dependencies:
ln -sf libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0.6.0 libwebkit-1.0.so.2
Update 2 Jul 2001: After upgrading to Eclipse Indigo 3.7.0, the internal browser works out of the box. I did not have to modify eclipse.ini. But it seems Eclipse now uses WebKit by default, so you still need to install the WebKit library and create the symlink if you haven't done so before.
