I've noticed that, too. Recent Eclipse versions complain about this.
But, I don't think its important. This serialVersionUID is only important in case of persisting objects or sending them over the wire using the standard Java stuff.
You always create a new version, when you change the class. As this would break the loading/saving of older versions.
But, there's no single Java object where we use this. So, its not important.
Eclipse complains about this even for AbstractColumbaAction.
You can safely ignore this warning in my opinion. As an hint, if a class implements Serializable, you should add this version uid.
