The GNU ARM Eclipse Plug-in project was registered in November 2006, and initially included an XML only plug-in definition.
The second 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.
Many thanks to Wilfried Holzke who created this project and maintained versions prior to 0.5.3.
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.
