Eclipse Marketplace Client (MPC) is a rich client interface for browsing and installing the Eclipse based solutions listed on the Eclipse Marketplace portal. It is a new feature that allows Eclipse users to discover and install Eclipse solutions directly into their Eclipse installation.
MPC is included in all of the packages available from the Eclipse download page (except the Classic Package). It is accessible from the Help menu. Below are the New & Noteworthy features of MPC 1.1 which was released as part of Indigo.
