What is Apache IvyDE?

IvyDE is the plugin which integrate Ivy into Eclipse.

IvyDE lets you manage your dependencies declared in an ivy.xml in your Java
Eclipse projects. IvyDE will contribute to the classpath of your Java project or
you can make it retrieve your dependencies directly into your project. Last but
not least IvyDE offer editors of ivy.xml and ivysettings.xml files with completion.

Status of this release

This is the first release considered as stable since the project as been hosted
by the Apache Software Foundation.

Major Changes in this Release

The "resolve in workspace" feature (make IvyDE search for Ivy dependencies
directly into the Eclipse projects) has been introduced in the last release
but was quite experimental. It has been refactored to be more reliable and
have been reported to be working like a charm by some of the IvyDE early users.

The IvyDE user documentation is now available directly into the Eclipse help center.

IvyDE can now load property files along with the Ivy settings.
