We have always offered a free PDF viewer plugin which is a nifty little plugin to not only allow you to view and search PDF files but also to bookmark them so that you can easily access them from inside Eclipse. Every year there is a big release of the next version of the Eclipse Operating system and we always like to do an update shortly after release. The Eclipse release always has a number as well as a name so the latest version is Helios (Eclipse 3.6). As well as the usual collection of improvements and bug fixes, Helios has an additional rather cool feature – the Eclipse marketplace. It provides a plugins store and allows Eclipse users to search and browse a database full of software. Here is what came up when I searched for PDF:
And the best bit is that you can then install the software just by clicking on the install button. The days of having to understand update sites are long gone! So I hope you will give Helios a try and I also hope you will download and try our free plugin – let us know what you think…
