i think i got it right now. i just re-installed the patch from here and now 1.8 is shown as compiler level.

i think while the "about" dialog showed me that the patch was installed, it probably wasn't done properly, because it updated other plugins / the ide to sr2 at the same time.

anways, this is solved.


i had some problems getting java se 8 to work in eclipse too. i followed the instructions in the eclipse wiki for the eclipse kepler sr2 (4.3.2) version.

after that, i could choose version 1.8 instead of 1.7, which solved the problem. the instructions seem to link to the same patch you used, though, but maybe you missed something important.
