Welcome to the InPlace Activator plugin update site.

This web page provides automatic distribution and updates for the Eclipse InPlace Activator plugin.

Plug-in Requirements

The plug-in has been tested with Eclipse version 3.8.2  and up to the latest Oxygen Release (4.7)  on Windows 64 bit, Linux and Mac. It should also work with version 3.7, but let us know if you have any problems.

The plug-in runs under Java 1.7 and 1.8.

If you plan to activate plug-ins that makes contributions to the workbench, version 3.8.2 is recommended. Dynamic bundles works as expected in version 4.x except for its lack of responsiveness to dynamic updates of the Eclipse main menu and tool bar from plug-ins activated dynamically.
