I received a bunch of those Eclipse Installed stickers from Wayne last week and yesterday I upgraded to Eclipse 3.2 M5 on all my desktops.
I like the stickers. They are really cute. Check out more pics here.
How to get Eclipse Installed stickers? Just visit an event were you can meet Eclipse Foundation staff members and ask for them!

Eclipse 3.2 M5 will introduce a new extension point and new API for supporting other repositories during a headless build. The contributed patch grow out of my modifications to get PDE Build running with ClearCase.
Hopefully, the copy extension will also appear in 3.2 M6. This is a very simple extension but it should enable PDE Build to support any repository out of the box. It fetches features, plug-ins and fragments from any accessible disc location. We’ve been using this extension in our ClearCase & CruiseControl environment since 2002. Read the rest of this entry »

Eclipse 3.2 M5 will come with improved target support. This allows to store target platform definitions into
.target files inside your workspace. You can use these definitions on the Target Platform preferences page.
This is a very helpful feature for plug-in developers. It’s now a lot easier to develop for multiple platforms from within one workspace. No need to create different target installs with a combination of different
.link files anymore. Simply open a target definition in the included editor and customize the target environment in an easy to use Forms UI based editor.
