When I try to create a new maven project with the latest GA release, it takes very long time to retrieve the list of all available archetypes. After the list of archetypes is retrieved, when I select one of the archetype and go further, it takes a long time to download the archetype. When I go back, select the same archetype again and go further, the archetype s retrieved again (long time). This situation with slow retrieving of the archetype list appears again when I close the dialog and open it again. I tried also STS and in this case this operation is very quick.
