Eclipse: WindowBuilder Pro and GWT Designer now free.

I've been a user of GWT Designer and Window Builder Pro for a few years now. In terms of a WYSIWYG interface for any Eclipse based development and GWT interface development, they are really second to none. Earlier this year the company that makes the products, Instantiations, was purchased by Google. I was curious to see what would become of these tools. In a surprising move, Google has released them for free. Thats right, their entire product lineup, for free, including their code testing tools WindowTester Pro and CodePro AnalytiX. While everyone was excited about Instant Search, to me this is much bigger news if your a Java Developer, or an Eclipse developer specifically. Its like its my birthday or something.
