Overview

The [GNU ARM Eclipse project](https://github.com/gnuarmeclipse) includes
a set of open source Eclipse plug-ins and tools to
create/build/debug/manage ARM (32-bit) and AArch64 (64-bit) applications
and static/shared libraries, using the latest GNU ARM GCC toolchains.

New look

Starting with September 2015, the [GNU ARM Eclipse
web](http://gnuarmeclipse.github.io/) site has a completely new look.

(see attached github-io-gae-home.jpg)

Apart from the aspect (definitely cool!), the main functional change is
the addition of the right sidebar, to facilitate access to the project
documentation.

The new site no longer uses WordPress; instead, it is entirely static
and was generated with Jekyll.

New project home on GitHub

With GitHub gaining more and more traction, the GNU ARM Eclipse project
was migrated from SourceForge to GitHub.

Repositories

The migration of repositories was easy, each project was pushed into its
own repository.

The current project repositories are:

  • plug-ins
  • windows-build-tools
  • openocd
  • qemu
  • build-scripts

Binary files as Releases

The migration of binary files was a bit more complicated, and, due to
current GitHub limitations, is incomplete. The main problem was raised
by the two Eclipse update sites, which require a certain folder
structure, and since GitHub currently does not support adding folders to
releases, the Eclipse update sites will remain hosted on SourceForge (at
http://gnuarmeclipse.sourceforge.net/updates).

Except the Eclipse update sites, all future binary files will be
published as GitHub Releases, attached to the respective project
repositories.

The archive of past releases was also migrated from SourceForge to
GitHub.

Issues trackers

The SourceForge trackers were replaced by the GitHub Issues trackers,
one for each project.

It is planned to preserve the content of the old SourceForge trackers,
even if now they are locked and new tickets cannot be created there.

Notifications via watched projects

For those interested in receiving notifications, the recommended way is
to subscribe to the GitHub projects, by clicking the Watch button and
selecting Watching).

In addition to the gnuarmeclipse/plug-ins project, it is also
recommended to subscribe to the gnuarmeclipse/gnuarmeclipse.github.io
project, to receive notifications for new Web posts.

From the description its not clear if it actually includes gcc.

It doesn't - the installation documentation has a chapter on getting the toolchain.
