Does anyone know of a resource that explains what the new color warnings mean? For example, the Java editor draws a purple line to the left of an empty method.

I found in the help the actual icon list (debug, new project, etc.) I'm looking more for the new symbols in the java editor itself.

The only "purple lines" I remember are either the "scope indicator" (don't know the official name), which shows the scope of the block the cursor currently is in, and the Quick Diff inidicator, which indicates lines that have changed against the file on disk/in the repository (based on your quick diff settings).

Does Eclipse show some additional information when you hover the mouse over it?

Can show us a screen shot?

Ilja,
No, Eclipse doesn't show any additional information when I hover over it.

I posted a screenshot (Tripod doesn't let me link directly to the image because it circumvents their ad banner.)

Yes, looks like quick diff. See the first two entries at http://download.eclipse.org/downloads/drops/R-3.0-200406251208/eclipse-news-part2-R3.html

Ilja,
Thanks. So that's what it was. The link is also useful for answering some of my other questions about what things mean. I did read the help that came with Eclipse, but it wasn't as detailed.
