The Eclipse update annoyance
- Every time you update, you have to select which server is closest to you, multiple times.
- You tick 'auto-select closest server' and it selects a slow US server, while I'm in Europe and there are plenty European servers available.
It has been less than perfect so far but it usually did the job, albeit it quite poorly at times, dependency checking was quite slow at times too when lots of new plugins were found. There are also a couple of other update implementations available in eclipse, I believe one is even commercial because it bothered so many developers.
I have tested ganymede but not the update mechanism specifically so give it a go and blog about it
the quickest way to get plugins for eclipse, use your linux distribution chain.
The slowest, use eclipse, WTF is this? 2009 and they can't write a decent software update? It's not like this is hard stuff, it's an update manager for gods sake!!!
