What is Eclipse Supporting Software (latest upgrade of force.com Eclipse plug-in)?

Hi all, I upgraded just now to latest force.com version (24) in Eclipse. In this upgrade, which I've never seen before, is something called force.com eclipse supporting software, which I presume is a collection of pre-req's that are required for the plug-in (which is nice).


When I installed though, eclipse gave me a warning during install, that the supporting software wasn't signed, and seemed to be provided by someone other than salesforce.com. In contrast the v24 plug-in is signed by salesforce.com. Which got me thinking, what exactly is this supporting package and what comes with it?


Does anyone have any more info on this?





What I could think of is.. These could be 3rd party plug-ins for various small features and hence  not signed by SFDC.
