CDT 8.1.2 is new version of CDT which was released as part of Juno 4.2.2 SR2 February 2013.

Before you install

  • You have to install Eclipse platform 3.8 or later for your platform
  • You have to install command line tool chain for build/debug, e.g. gnu tool chain (gcc, gdb, etc)

Download and Install CDT 8.1.2

  • 1) Download the master zip file and put it somewhere on your machine.
    Master zip files for CDT 8.1.2 and earlier versions are available from Download
    Master zip file for Nightly build and even more recent builds can be found on Builds page
  • 2) Fire up Eclipse
  • 3) Help->Software Updates
  • 4) On the Available Features tab, select Manage sites...
  • 5) Add... in the master zip as an Archive...
    Note: if feature list won't update close and re-open Software Updates dialog.
    Note: Current version only works with Archive, it does not work if you unpack it and use Local Site.

    Tools is the main one. The SDK adds in the schemas and source for
    building extensions to the CDT. The C/C++ Development Platform is the

    the CDT Optional Features category.
