You should run against e4 0.13 release. The official release is nigh:
* <b>SWT:</b> Running the [[E4/SWT/Running_the_demos | cross-compile-SWT-to-Flash demos]]
+
* <b>UI:</b> Running the e4 [[E4/UI/Running_the_photo_demo |photo demo]], [[E4/UI/Running the contacts demo|contacts demo]], and the [[E4/UI/Running_CSS_demos | CSS examples ]]
+
* <b>XWT:</b> Running the [[E4/XWT/Running_the_demos | declarative UI demos]]

[1] Note that the Eclipse e4 UI work also requires the EMF runtime. This will be brought in automatically.  However, if you wish to view or edit the UI model and you're not a fan of XML source editing, you will want to install the EMF SDK which provides the EMF .xmi editor. Follow "Help" -> "Install New Software..." -> "Models and Model Development" -> "EMF SDK - Eclipse Modeling Framework SDK 2.4.1 or 2.5.0", then restart Eclipse.

e4 provides an "all in one" download, called the '''e4 SDK'''. This is a product that contains everything you would ever need to develop e4: the latest Eclipse SDK, EMF SDK, and all of the e4 bundles and source code, and parts of the Equinox SDK. Simply download the zip, unzip it, and run the eclipse.exe as you would for the basic Eclipse platform.  This will launch an e4 SDK that you can use to try out the demos and experiment with an e4 application.
 
  
=== Secondary method: install manually ===

== Installing e4 0.12 June 2012  ==
  
Use the '''e4 SDK''' if you can, but you can also install pieces of e4 individually (it's just a lot more hunting around).

The most recent OFFICIAL e4 release is the e4 0.12 release.  
  
Prep: Go to the [http://download.eclipse.org/e4/downloads integration builds page], navigate to the desired build (if you're not sure which to choose, use the stable build, then look down in the bottom right corner for "online p2 repo link". Copy the underlying URL.
