* https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=543202 (failure to rename methods)
* https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=543203 (failure to execute package name fix)
* Every once in a while an annoying pop-up informs one that Eclipse wishes to disable shortcuts and the user needs to allow/deny it.
* The Java content assist defaults seem to have changed quite radically, so instead of getting Java focused auto-completion suggestions one needs to scroll through un-related options until the Java one appears (I had to intervene and change the settings in order to restore the behavior I was used to)

These are just a few (!) of the usability issues I have encountered so far. As a very long (and faithful) user of this great IDE, I am pretty disappointed with the 2018-12 release. I don't remember a new release having so many usability issues from the get-go. In this context, some of these issues occur on Windows as well as Fedora - so it seems to be something deeper than just environment differences.

I believe the content-assist changes are due to Eclipse Code Recommenders being pulled from the 2018-12 distribution.

Eclipse Platform committer. Ask me about Eclipse support, training, and consulting.
