One piece of exciting news today is that Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo) is available. But the best part is that you can download it via Amazon S3 and CloudFront. As of earlier today at least, the "old-fashioned" mirrors were dragging, but the S3 download was extremely snappy.
Unfortunately, the S3 link isn't very well-advertised on the download page, so I wanted to mention it here. When you get to the download page for the distro you want, look down the page for "Download from Amazon Web Services". I bet you'll be impressed.
