The GNU ARM Eclipse Plug-in project was registered in November 2006, and initially included an XML only plug-in definition; although functional, it was somehow limited.
The first fully functional edition of this plug-in (version 0.5.3) was announced in March 2009, when the plug-in was practically recreated, functionality was extended and more toolchains were supported. The Eclipse specifics, like adding a feature project and an update site project were also added.
In September 2013, based on the Eclipse CDT and ARM Toolchains new developments, work on the second edition of the plug-in started, involving a major rewrite, inspired by the CDT Cross Compile plug-in.
Many thanks to:
- Wilfried Holzke who created this project and maintained versions prior to 0.5.3;
- my good friend Dan Maiorescu, for his invaluable support during the design, development and testing of the plug-in.
This site was created in early 2012, using WordPress, and was intended to improve communication with users by keeping them informed about current issues and releases.
This plug-in is currently maintained by Liviu Ionescu, a senior IT engineer, with expertise in operating systems, compilers, embedded systems and Internet technologies.
