[eclipse-dev] Eclipse (4.5.2 RC1) and Equinox (Mars.2 RC1) Builds are available

It is that time of year! We are beginning our ramp down to Mars.2 [1].

This RC1 build is considered "warm-up" builds [2] and has not had a "test pass day" or sign-offs. We begin those with RC2 in two weeks.
We appreciate anyone able to do "early testing", but the RC1 build is not quite as finished as a true "release candidate".

[2] For those that like long-term planning (and tangents :), the concept of "warm-up RC builds" began
many years ago due to the yearly Simultaneous Release Train. Beginning with
Neon Maintenance (next September) we will no longer have (official) "warm-up"  
builds since the vast majority of Eclipse projects no longer require it.
