I didn't say it was up to date, I said it was "pretty close." Current in
version in ports is 3.7.0_4.
Netbeans IS up to date and is a better IDE in my opinion. If your project is
based on maven, then you should be able to use any IDE that supports maven
projects. However, last time I checked, the maven support in Eclipse was fairly
limited and essentially unusable... Netbeans and IntelliJ have much better
support for maven.

actually, eclipse *is* out of date:
while the latest stable is 3.7.2.
3.7.1 was the first eclipse supporting Java 7 syntax.
Since I need it (I collaborate on some Java 7 projects)
I run it on a Linux virtual machine.
I tried to update the port but failed and now I'm short
of time. Is anybody working on the port? A week or two
ago I asked on freebsd-eclipse@ but no response.
