We have been working hard with a renewal to our Eclipse plugin. The largest effort has been proper support for Maven projects, but there are improvements for all users. Highlights of the upcoming 3.0 version:
All new Vaadin projects are Maven-based by default
Project templates are based on Maven archetypes
Updated look and feel for dialogs, icons and wizards
New “Notifications Center” that consolidates all Vaadin related notifications
Easily use Vaadin pre-releases version in your project
Shortcuts to compile Vaadin widgetset and theme
To help us iron out the last rough edges, we hope you could install the beta version today. To do that, choose “Help -> Install New Software” and work with our beta update site: http://vaadin.com/eclipse/experimental.
