Fedora Eclipse - update to a snapshot version

I decided to update Eclipse version to the repository snapshot and push this new build into Fedora 18. It's available in updates-testing repository. This is not something that is welcome in Fedora world as unreleased software tends to be unstable.
But this time is a little bit different. If you open the 'Install Software' dialog, you will notice that a new category appeared - Juno SR1 Patches:

This patch fixes, among others,  the most annoying issue with Eclipse 4.2.1 -
Bug 391868 - very slow switching editors; especially XML.
Only this bug made it worth to push a new build into Fedora 18. If you are interested in what else was fixed, look at this bugzilla query

Happy Hacking!
