JBoss Tools 4.1.1 and JBoss Developer Studio 7.1 were released 2 days ago. This release is built on top of Eclipse Kepler 4.3.1, came in less than 6 months from the previous one, has 500+ bug fixes and some nice features.
What is the difference between JBoss Tools and JBoss Developer Studio ?
JBoss Tools is a set of plugins for Eclipse that complements, enhances and goes beyond the support that exists for JBoss and related technologies in the default Eclipse distribution.
JBoss Developer Studio is a fully bundled Eclipse distribution which not only includes the majority of JBoss Tools but also all its needed dependencies and 3rd party plugins allowing for an easy one-click and no-fuss installation.
