[FDS-109] Stepping seems slow (Eclipse 3.5 ‘Galileo’ with Cocoa SWT)


Users installing FusionDebug into a Mac OS X installation of Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo) utilizing the Cocoa SWT widget system may experience slow performance when stepping.

This will be reflected by a short delay between the Debug view updating its contents and the relevant source file and line being displayed in the editor.

We have isolated this as an issue in the Cocoa SWT build, and as such is unfortunately out of our control. The SWT (Standard Widget Toolkit) is the component of Eclipse which provides the buttons, menus and other visual components.

This problem has a slight impact on stepping speed. If you are affected by this issue, we recommend you obtain the Carbon build of Eclipse for Mac OS X which does not exhibit this issue.

You can find all Eclipse builds for Eclipse 3.5 ‘Galileo’ here.
