I see lot of buzz around a _javascript_ update in Eclipse Neon but honestly, I don't see a real change :(
In general, it was a frustrating experience :( I had lot of expectation for this release, but what I see are regressions or a work in progress.
The changes are highly visible if you use node.js, npm, bower, debug...
However, it's true that the pure edition part now misses some important features that were previously available.

- I saw somewhere there is a new JSON editor (but I did not find a wizard to create a JSON file). I had to create it via New File wizard.
How is it important to have a dedicated wizard for such a trivial task? If the wizard does nothing more than creating a file, what's wrong with the new file wizard?
I know there are other options like those based on (that works much better) but yet I prefer to keep on the standard tooling.
JSDT 2.0 + is currently the best combo for JS dev in Eclipse IDE. And I believe it's what most JSDT contributors would recommend at the moment. Hopefully, just JSDT should do the work in a near future.
