SWT Visual Editor

This project in the Eclipse foundation has not followed the Eclipse yearly release since Eclipse 3.2 (2006) see here.

This really is a shame as for designers visual editing is a real time saver for those who do not want to fiddle around with layering elements with code, I found that beginner developpers face problems writing hardcoded GUIs.

But it seems that a french compagny called Soyatech did the porting on Eclipse 3.4 and if you carrefully look at their web site there is also a port for Eclipse 3.3 that seems to work quiet well.
