after upgrading the eclipse plugin I found a folder named "gwt-unitCache" under my project directory. I think it was not there before.
Does anyone know what it is for?

It's used by the compiler to cache "compilation units", which are (basically) the things it creates upon parsing your Java source files. The gwt-unitCache will speed-up subsequent compiles because it can just read from the cache rather than re-parse/compile a file if it hasn't changed.
I believe it's also used by devmode (can't remember).
