I love our new platform.ui UI freeze reporting in Eclipse 4.5 which was contributed by Google.
Git in Eclipse gets faster soon, thanks to the amazing reaction time of Robin Stocker and Matthias Sohn and our new Eclipse platform UI freeze monitor. See for example Gerrit review for one of the improvements.
If you want to help to make Eclipse faster, simply download the latest Eclipse 4.5 milestone or integration build and activate it via its preferences.
Afterwards you received entries in the Eclipse error log about UI freeze. If you see a freeze please report it via Eclipse Bugzilla.
As we think the tooling is extremely useful we have activate it by default via our saneclipse plug-in.
Matthias Sohn contacted me with the info that Andrey Loskutov also fixed several issues found with the UI performance monitor.

A big thanks to Andrey also!
