Eclipse Install with Lucid

I am merely posting this to give a quick update to the process for installing Eclipse with Lucid. It seems that the Ubuntu repositories have finally caught up with the latest release of Eclipse so there is no need to download the package off of the Eclipse website. Just a few terminal commands will do it:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install eclipse
This should work quite well and it will install Eclipse SDK 3.5.2. You can then proceed as usual with your normal set-up and install of plugins with Eclipse. Enjoy!

It`s good.
But what about new coming version Eclipse Helios 3.6
Can we see updated version in repository after it officially released.
Thanks.

I'm not an official spokesperson for them, but from experience it generally takes a while before it will get into the repos. In fact I can't remember a time when I actually installed it from the repos until now. It was always behind, but hopefully we will see some quicker updates to it.
