Milestone 2 for Eclipse 3.6 is now available. Now that summer is over, and most people have returned from vacation, Eclipse development is starting to ramp up again. Interested in getting involved, now is a GREAT time...

As usual there will be no linux installer nor support for Ubuntu.

i wonder when will the old people get replaced by new generations in the Eclipse community.

Eclipse isn't responsible for providing the "linux installer." Eclipse really doesn't need an installer because you can just unzip it on disk and everything is self contained... and works.

It's the Linux distros themselves who are responsible for packaging Eclipse the way they want. Fedora has no problem with this. It's Ubuntu that has been lagging behind.

That's comparing Apples and Oranges :)

By default, Eclipse doesn't mess with any OS specific things like the Windows Registry or create new desktop icons on any Linux distro. It's all self-contained in a zip. We encourage "upstream" to write any installers or package Eclipse how they want. If you're interested in how a Linux community has take advantage of Eclipse, I highly recommend checking out how Fedora and Redhat ship Eclipse:
