Eclipse Marketplace continues to be the place to discover interesting and relevant Eclipse plugins. There are over 100,000 successful installs/month of Eclipse-based products via the Eclipse Marketplace client. We have a list of the most popular plugins over the last 30 days and all time.

    But where is SVN? 
    SVN with Maven should be inside Eclipse!

  2.  Not JBoss Tools? Not ADT ? Weird. How much plugins are installed via Marketplace? How much plugin are installed outside marketplace? Maybe that can explain it.
