Windows 10 users: performance issues?

Windows 10 Defender significantly slows down Eclipse, reason being Windows 10 Defender scanning the JAR files. The problem has been reported to Microsoft here. Until then, a workaround to this problem is to add Eclipse root directory to Windows 10 Defender's exclusion list, detailed steps are shared here.

  • When LDT files with errors were converted to IES, the conversion would fail silently, resulting in an empty file. This has been fixed and all errors during batch conversion will be shown at the end of a conversion. Files without errors will all be processed. Note that these errors can be caught by using the validators!
