All plugins are installed with the standard update manager of Eclipse. It will guide you through the installation process and also eases keeping your plugins up-to-date. Just add the update site:

This procedure in more detail:

  • Choose the menu item "Help->Software Updates->Find and Install..."
  • Select that you want to install an update or a new feature and press "Next"
  • Click on "New Remote Site" and enter a name (e.g. "") and the URL "". Click "OK" and then "Next".
  • Now you can select the feature (plugin) you wish to install
  • Confirm the upcoming dialogs and restart Eclipse

RSS View and FreeMem come with a new view that has to be activated using the menu Window->Show view->Other.
