What're the best versions and configuration tricks for building a happy Java development environment with Eclipse on Ubuntu?
I'm at Ubuntu 8.10 and Eclipse Ganymede 3.4.2, so I'm behind on both fronts. With my current setup, Eclipse often slows to a crawl and I have to restart. I'd love to upgrade to the latest OS and IDE. However, I've heard bad stories about later versions of Eclipse running on later versions of Ubuntu, and I'd rather not spend time upgrading just to find that I jumped from the frying pan into the fire.
My must-have plugins (which work on my current setup): - Subclipse - AspectJ - Jupiter
Nice to have: - Counterclockwise (which doesn't work for me on my current setup)
Anyone have a holy grail of versions and setup tricks to make things happy?
