Eclipse Indigo is here

The yearly Eclipse update is here, and it's called Indigo. As with every release this is the synchronized release of a large number of projects : 62 this year.

Eclipse Indigo

Some of the new features include Maven Integration (via M2E, a new project with this release), support for Hudson (via Mylyn), as well as the integration of EclipseLink 2.3 (which does multitenancy and more, see release page, blog). Support for Java 7 is expected for the September update release. The "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" bundle is 210 MB.

Support for GlassFish is available today as well! The GlassFish plugin now offers the ability to deploy to remote running GlassFish instances and supports version 3.0.x and 3.1.x (including recent promoted builds). That GlassFish plugin for Indigo also works for the earlier Helios release. The update to Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse (OEPE) will come with the Indigo September (3.7.1) update.

Here is some coverage for this major release: PressRelease, DZone, InfoQ.

Comments:

2 cheers for the return of this removed feature.
The Glassfish plugin supported deployment to remote Glassfish instances in version 1.0.10. We've been using it ever since. Unfortunately no-one at Sun noticed, and it was removed after that!
