latest downloads from the eclipsefp project

In order to successfully install the latest EclipseFP 2 release you will need a Java 5.0 compliant virtual machine, at least an Eclipse 3.5 platform and the GHC Haskell compiler. These packages are not provided by the EclipseFP team and must be downloaded and installed from external sources. Here are some links that might prove useful:

  • Sun's Java 2 Platform Standard Edition 5.0 download page
  • Eclipse download page. Look for the platform runtime binaries, if you don't want to download the entire SDK. (The platform runtime contains the basic Eclipse IDE without Java and Plugin development tools.)
  • The Glasgow Haskell Compiler download page
  • The Haskell Platform download page

Installation from the update site

The latest release is available from an Eclipse Update Site. Downloading and installing can be automatically done by the Eclipse SDK. To use the automatic update site, follow this instructions:

  1. Start Eclipse and choose from the menu Help > Install New Software...
  2. Select Search for new features to install and hit Next.
  3. Press Add..., enter whatever you like as Name and as Location.
  4. Press OK, check the checkbox and hit Next.

Choose a release with 0.x version number to get the EclipseFP 1 prerelease; choose a 2.x version to get the EclipseFP 2 prerelease (recommended). From now on it should be self-explaining.

Note: if you access the Internet though a proxy server (this is the case in many organizations) then you must tell Eclipse about the proxy with Window > Preferences > General > Network Connections.

Alternatively, you can download the entire update site for every release from the file release site. The archived update site for the last release is also available above. In order to use an archived update site instead of the on-line one, just choose Add archived site and browse to the downloaded file on step 3.
