I did a quick search for good examples of the Show Annotations feature in Eclipse but didn't find any so I figured I would post some. I also checked Eclipse's documentation and found none. The closest I came was a post by Jim Crumb Priest.

Starting in the the Navigator View, I right-click on the file, then select Team —> Show Annotation

Then after the file processes, the file appears in my Editor panel. In the gutter, I have information related to each line and how it got to the current state. If I mouse-over the line number, I get information about the line and it "boxs" out the other lines also changed with the specific commit.

This last image shows different options to customize the coloring and information shown in the gutter by right-clicking on the gutter.
