Text Editors

Open-with does not store the editor relationship anymore The menu entry "Open With > ..." does not store the selected editor as default editor for the selected file as this was undesired in most cases and lead to confusion. Also, removing this association was not easy for the end user. The user can still assign a editor to a certain file type via the "Open With > Other..." dialog.


Enable word wrap on console output A new preference Enable word wrap is available in the Console preference page. This setting persists the current state of the "Word wrap" toggle on the console view between user sessions. By default, word wrapping is disabled on console output.

Terminate descendants of operating-system processes launched by Eclipse Some types of launch-configurations start operating-system processes when launched from Eclipse. When you terminate the corresponding process before it completes (for example by clicking the terminate button, the red square) that operating-system process is destroyed. Now the descendants of that process, its child-processes created by the main-process and their children recursively, are destroyed too.
