Discovered the new about dialog

Investigating bug 265691, I opened the about dialog (Help>About Eclipse SDK).
I was expecting the old look with several buttons.

I was pleased to see that there is only one button now called "Installation Details".

Clicking on it opened a nice dialog that contains all the previous information organized using tabs. This is more compact, more scalable!

I like it! Thumps up to whoever did it!

The resizing of this dialog is not optimal, but it is definitely a good start! For example, a sash between the two boxes would be nice to be able to resize the bottom part.
