Disable ECB startup messages

ECB (Emacs Code Browser) is an editing environment for emacs.

It starts up with a "tip of the day". To disable it, add this line to your ~/.emacs:
(setq ecb-tip-of-the-day nil)

In my case, it also shows the following message in the first buffer:

There are no incompatible or renamed options. Your settings are correct. But ECB must store that the ecb-settings are uptodate with 2.32. Click on [Save] to save `ecb-options-version' into /home/min/.emacs. This makes a backup of this file unique named with a suffix .before_ecb_2.32. However, after clicking "Save", I get an error message about mismatched parentheses, and the options message reappears next time I start ecb.

To fix this, add this line to your ~/.emacs:
(custom-set-variables '(ecb-options-version "2.32"))
