“We are very proud to celebrate another on-time annual release
train from the Eclipse community,” states Mike Milinkovich,
executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. “This release has a
long list of new features, especially for Java developers. Features
such as Git support, Maven and Hudson integration, a great GUI
builder in WindowBuilder, and our new Jubula testing tool will, I
am sure, motivate developers to try Indigo.”
This release sees Eclipse Generation Factories (EGF), Eclipse
Runtime Packaging Project, Eclipse Scout, EMF Facet, Jubula
Functional Testing Tool, Maven Integration, Object Teams and the
WindowBuilder GUI builder, join the release train. Other updates,
include Riena version 3.0, which supports the creation of web
browser applications using Eclipse RAP, and Equinox 3.7, which
implements the OSGi 4.3 specification, including the use of generic
signatures and capabilities.
This is the eighth successive year where the Eclipse community
has shipped a coordinated release on schedule, which has led

you to find another piece of software that has consistently
delivered On-Time since 2001.” Indigo can be downloaded
