Update: Jeto posted a comment below with a solution to this slowdown. Just switch to another perspective (other than the PHP one) and restart eclipse. When editing PHP projects, don’t switch to the PHP perspective. Everything should work as normal. I guess we’ll have to use this hack until PDT 3.1 is released. Thanks Jeto!
I’m very glad to see something like Eclipse Juno. I can see tonnes of improvements in the visual appearance as compared to Indigo. I installed PDT, and found the intellisense to be much better.
However, switching tabs in Juno + PDT is incredibly slow. On the average, it takes about 2 to 3 seconds. And that too with just 4 small files open.
The reason for this might lie with an outdated PDT. On the PDT download page, the only bundle I see is Eclipse 3.7.2 + PDT 3.0.2. So, Zend haven’t updated their package to Juno, which may indicate that there is still work to be done.
So, I’ve switched back to Indigo for the moment. But I’m finding Juno incredible for everything else. I also have NetBeans, which is great. But I find Juno’s intellisense much better. Too bad I’ll have to wait for an updated PDT.
