I’ve taken the giant leap forward in recent months, to the realization that All GIFs Are Evil, and it’s time to abandon that format. They’re heavy, slow, poor quality and just a drudge from a world of 20 years ago. And they tie up my meager Internet connection.

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20
If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20.
Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection!
A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website.
The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package.
