You should use the Help>Install New Software functionality of Eclipse to install EDT (or other Eclipse plugins). There are 2* main ways to install EDT.
One way is via an update site, where Eclipse handles the download and install for you as a single process. To use an update site, paste the URL (for EDT 0.8.0 M1 the URL is download.eclipse.org/edt/milestones/1.0/) into the Location field of the Add Repository dialog.
The second way to install EDT is to use a browser (same URL as above) to download the .zip file (for EDT 0.8 M1 it's named edt-Update-R080M1.zip), then click the Archive button of the Add Repository dialog and point to that zip. One advantage to using the zip is that you can download it once and install it to multiple Eclipse environments.
(*I believe there is a third way, where you unzip the zip and click the Local button of Add Repository dialog to point to the directory you unzipped to...but why unzip if you don't have to. )
In your case, it seems you have unzipped the zip plus added the update site, when only one is necessary.
It's not recommended to just unzip the file into your existing Eclipse environment. You should use Eclipse's Install New Software functionality. That way, dependencies are checked for before installing, and you can uninstall just that plugin or feature. Plus, Eclipse then knows about the feature to perform additional updates correctly.
Once you install EDT 0.8 M1, you should see Eclipse EDT Developer Tools (EDT) feature with 0.8 (M1 starts v20120124..., which is the build date: Jan 24, 2012) as version under the Help>About. Look for the EGL icon to see the features and versions appear.
Hope this helps!

Thanks, I uninstalled and reinstalled via an update site with the
It installed but did not change the version under the Help>About.
It is probably OK because it shows when you click on the EGL icon
