The announcement on RebelLabs gives you a full picture of all the features, but their bulleted list of the main ones is probably all you need to decide whether you'd like to download this free tool or not:

- Slow class verification
- Congested system caches
- Unconfigured external build tools
- Old JDK versions
- Lengthy build and redeploy times
