Using Eclipse in Fullscreen Mode under Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

Since the recent OS update enabled fullscreen applications, all I wanted to do was using Eclipse in Fullscreen mode. But since the most recent eclipse release does not support this feature it seemed impossible. But now Alex Blewitt came to the rescue. In his recent blog post he describes what is necessary to make eclipse fullscreen compatible.  So go ahead and read it here or open Eclipse > Install New Software > Add “http://github.bandlem.com/” and install the extension. Thanks Alex!

  9. Absolutely love it. Thank you!
    Though, would it be possible to disable the ESC=exitFullScreenMode? If I have the console open, ESC normally closes the console and gets me back to my code. But now, it does that AND gets me out of fullscreen mode. Any way to get around this?
