  2. Congratulations to the AspectJ team. I downloaded it after checking Adrian's blog this morning, and so far it's looking like a big step forward. My biggest gripe was that having an AspectJ project seemed to slow down the whole of Eclipse. (Anyone else notice this, or was it just me?) Now that problem seems to have gone away.
