Early Access

Downloadable Zips

The EPP project provides

Or download individual zips from the projects' download pages.

For a list of the individual project builds that make up each Ganymede milestone, see Ganymede/Signoffs.

Update Manager Sites

Depending on how close you want to be to the bleeding edge, there are three ways to get Ganymede project updates.

First, install Eclipse 3.4 (SDK or Platform Runtime Binary) from http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/. Then point your Update Manager at one of these sites:

This is usually the most up to date, but you'll need one URL per project.
Projects that have contributed new bits to the Ganymede Build will be here. This aggregates all the per-project individual sites into one place.
Once a milestone, the latest bits in the staging site will be pushed to production.

Milestones and Release Candidates

These dates are subject to change. See Ganymede Milestones for the latest full schedule.

Communication

Eclipse projects have three communication channels: a mailing list for developers, a newsgroup for users, and Bugzilla. Ganymede, although not a "project" per se, will use the same structure:

  • cross-projects-issues-dev [1] - mailing list for developers and releng
  • eclipse.simultaneous-release (TBC) - newsgroup for users
  • bugzilla (new & search) Eclipse Foundation > Community > Cross-Project
