The GA release of MyEclipse 5.0 is now available for immediate installation in the "Downloads" area of the MyEclipse website. Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX support is available. Please review New and Noteworthy, installation instructions and release notes before download.
Highly anticipated in the industry, MyEclipse 5.0 was the first public IDE offering compatible with Eclipse 3.2 and accompanying Callisto project offerings, with the 5.0 M2 release being available just days after the Eclipse 3.2 release. Be sure to <a <br /> <br /> href="http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/">install the Eclipse 3.2 SDK prior to installation of MyEclipse 5.0. Please note that all additional Callisto-compatible projects that are required by MyEclipse are part of our distribution. As a result, the recommended installation order is Eclipse 3.2 SDK, MyEclipse 5.0, and then any additional Callisto-compatible projects / products.
