We’ve just released an important update to the Force.com Toolkit for Eclipse. If you’re already using the Toolkit, you’ll want to pick up this update. If you aren’t using it yet, now it a great time to see why this is still the best tool going both for editing Apex code and s-controls, and for publishing finished Apex code into other Salesforce instances.
This latest Developer Preview release includes a large number of fixes and usability improvements, especially in the areas of package handling, project synchronization and deployment. See the release notes for details.
If you already have the August 16 release installed, you can pick up this update using the update facility built into Eclipse. You can find detailed instructions here.
Make sure you check out the release notes, FAQs, and installation guide on the toolkit’s main ADN page.
