Callisto, an effort from Eclipse Foundation, which bundles ten projects in order to ease the integration with Eclipse, has been released. “Callisto is about improving the productivity of the developers working on top of Eclipse frameworks by providing a more transparent and predictable development cycle. By releasing 10 projects at the same time, the goal is to eliminate uncertainty about version compatibility and make it easier to incorporate multiple projects into your environment.”

Sounds great, the update tool has been working very well for me and collaboration is usually a good thing.
The various subsystems do not appear to be “bundled.” Rather, they can be managed using the proprietary “update manager.” For those of us that use disconnected development systems, you’re SOL– “oh, just do it by hand…”
When I first heard about Callisto, I was excited. However, it fails to live up to the hype– primarily due to this very issue.
Simple use the non proprietary update manager (this is by no means proprietary) and once you are set, zip your eclipse installation…
