Eclipse Europa is Available

Today marks the release of Eclipse Europa, the next version of Eclipse's open source framework and components. This is a great achievement by Eclipse and a testament to the power of open source--the on-time, simultaneous, coordinated release of 21 distinct projects is a fantastic feat. Even the largest software companies have trouble releasing a couple products together.

This is why at Red Hat, we are doing all of our development for JBoss Tools in open source at In fact, we are already targeting Eclipse Europa with our plugins. So, if you want to try out all the latest tools for building powerful and rich applications, try downloading Eclipse Europa and then installing the latest JBoss Tools builds! And, of course, you can look forward to Red Hat Developer Studio later this summer, which will certify and integrate all this, along with the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.
