My One Complaint About The Latest Eclipse

I have but one complaint about the latest release of my favorite IDE, Eclipse. Everyone who uses Eclipse knows that to close an editor you click on the little ‘X’ button on the right side of the editor’s tab. But for the past several months there’s been another way: Control-Click anywhere on the tab. (You can also Ctrl-F4.) The Ctrl-Click struck me as odd when I first read about it, but I’ve come to do it reflexively. Now they’ve taken it away!!! I don’t know why, but they did. And I’m not happy about it… I keep Ctrl-clicking on those tabs and they just don’t go anywhere now…
