Platform UI:
- Important:
  - A major bug was introduced in 3.5 M4 that could cause contributed
    toolbar items to be hidden (bug 264312).  If you have opened the
    customize perspective dialog since 3.5 M4, and you don't see toolbar
    or menu items that should be there, please do Window > Reset Perspective.
    Eric will send a separate message to eclipse-dev with details about this.
