Tested on ~amd64
This particular bug has been open since the 4th of July. So far, although there
have been plenty of ebuilds created for testing, there has been no movement to
place an updated ebuild out on the servers. This seems to be true even though
there hasn't been a single documented problem with any of the interim ebuilds.
I'm using pydev with ~x86 and I'm still seeing only 0.8.0. Anyone know when/if
we are going to see a more up to date version released for those of us who
prefer to test the "testing" version of ebuilds?
As said elsewhere, there is little benefit for users to install binary Eclipse

Thanks for the update. I was not aware of the problems surrounding 1.5.

Yes package.masked so please use the update manager. Please open a new bug if you can make an ebuild from source.
