I just downloaded the M3 build of Eclipse (OS X) - and even in spite of
the forthcoming rebuild of the SWT, it's still looking a lot better
than the previous milestones. I also was surprised to see that mouse
scroll-wheel support is enabled in this milestone (don't remember it
working before), and to think that I had heard that scroll-wheel
support wouldn't work on any java application until 1.4.1 was released.
Anyway, its working. :) Very nice. Now for the "but" part. I
noticed that if I scroll rapidly thru something, like the text editor,
or if the Package Explorer perspective is very long, then the view will
get corrupted, with blocks of stuff appearing where it shouldn't be
appearing. Its hard for me to explain, but basically it's not
refreshing correctly. If I do the same with by moving the scrollbar
with the mouse, no corruption occurs at all, so it would seem to
indicate a problem with the mousewheel support itself.
Otherwise, great job. You've saved me $2000 by deciding that I don't
need to upgrade to JBuilder 8. :)
