NixMashup for March 26, 2014

Greetings from Vermont! In this NixMashup we greet the news of full Java 8 support now available in Eclipse. A CNET article on someone quitting Microsoft Office inspires over 600 comments (of mostly fellow Office quitters and wannabe-quitters.) We’ll tell you where to go for Java Packages and Bootstrap Resources. Linux Mint 17 “Qiana” is announced with Clem answering your questions in the comment thread. Reflections on EclipseCon 2014 from someone who’s been there all eleven years. PostgreSQL Full-Text search will impress even the most ardent Lucene fans (like me). Oh, and log everything.

If you want to catch all of the NixMashup link action and see the links as they are created, follow the NixMash Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/nixmash. Most NixMashup links are first posted to the NixMash feed for later compilation here in NixMashup.
