Thanks for the comments. One big benefit I've seen on 3.3 on Windows: it
cuts over 1.5 MB off some of the sample SWT apps executables!
However, during most of the writing of the article, I was on 3.2. I did
think about recommending 3.3 in the article, but I wouldn't have had
enough time to test on it. It would be a real bummer if I recommended 3.3
and then readers ended up with problems.
Even so, if you think it is very important, I can check whether I can make
a last-minute edit to the article.

I wholeheartedly agree. There's no comparison considering the numerous
bugfixes and enhancements since 3.2.

Duly noted. I will put out a quasi-final 3.3 build in the next couple
