This plugin allows you to create, compile and upload sketches with nearly the same simplicity as the Arduino IDE but with all full functional features one would expect from a professional IDE and includes a serial monitor and a graphical plotter.

This is a free and open-source plugin that is a professional and complete alternative to the Arduino IDE. This is an add-on to the CDT plugin and as such has all C/C++ development features plus a toolbar with the Arduino buttons from the Arduino IDE and an Arduino menu for importing libraries and more. There is no dependency on the Arduino IDE.Sloeber supports 500+ boards and 3 languages (English, Dutch, Italian).
Note: This is the plugin which can be installed by experianced eclipse users.This solution is also available as a product on the marketplace.

Beginners are advised to install the product.

Using the "drag to install" feature it's installing the v2.0 version, hot to get the 3.0 version?

Thanks in advance, E.

I assume yu were trying to install in neon. I seemed V3 was not marked as compatible with neon.
I changed that and market place tried to install V3 in my neon eclipse install.
If marketplace insists on installing V2: install from this update site
Note that if you are new to Sloeber we advice to install the "product" which you can get here: (select the install menu at the top and then stable for your OS)

Another reason may be that V3 needs java 8.

Does not work with latest arduino and boards.

V3.0 does not need an arduino ide and it supports all the arduino boards.
If you have a issue with a specific board please create a issue at github

I initially started to use this plugin more than a year ago and, as a long Eclipse user, I couldn't believe I did spend so much time playing with Arduino without using it!
Anybody willing to get some non trivial development on Arduino should migrate to this plugin at once, simply because it makes your life so much easier you would really question yourself with "How come I didn't know about it!".

And since I've got involved into its development and testing I know some very interesting news are right behind the corner, waiting to be announced!
