Nightly Builds use only if you feel confident"
Every night, a little gnome called Jenkins walks around our servers looking for changes occurred during the day and, when he finds any, he feels so happy he starts the build process!
Beware though, as the nightly build represents the latest and greatest version off the code, but there is no guarantee that these versions do not contain any issue (they probably do) as the little gnome is not renowned for his patience and he doesn't test the build extensively: actually he runs away right after launching it!
And probably worse: The nightly is the playground of the contributors. No testing has been done, no validation has been done.If you have download issues try another browser. Firefox seems to work fine on all oses. chrome seems to have issues.
Some recent changes:
Due to a DDos attack I needed to move files around. As a consequence I no longer offer a list of latest nightlies.
Note that there are multiple versions. The latest are at the bottom.
Mac users read the mac specific info.
Eclipse Update Site
Alternatively you can get the latest nightly build by setting the following update site within an existing Eclipse CDT installation
You can not upgrade from V3 to V4!!!!
Even worse: you can install V3 and V4 in the same eclips installation causing all kind of wierd side effects. So don't do it
