New M2Eclipse Plugin Content Assist Feature

Last week in the Maven Developer Hangout Anton Tanasenko, an M2Eclipse committer, gave a demo of the new Maven plugin configuration content assist feature in M2Eclipse. Users have frequently been frustrated that while trying to configure a Maven plugin they don’t get much help.
