The offical version for eclipse 3.3(or higher) seem in a very low priority.
But I sugguest imp committers to deal with this request soonly.
If we are extremely anxious, we should do it ourselves:)

I wrrite some notes here in some experiments today. And I hope this may
answer some questions about this topic to some extent.

1. make all prerequisites ready in your workspace.
see more: http://eclipse-imp.sourceforge.net/developers/index.html
notes: for me, lpg.runtime.java(and its dependencies) source ,
com.ibm.wala.shrike source, and polyglot binary

2. get the source from offical svn.
see more: http://www.eclipse.org/imp

3. some compiling error will appear after step 1,2. Then, we should
"Building Required Parsers".
see more: http://eclipse-imp.sourceforge.net/developers/index.html
notes: build every *.g files. Some projects seem been removed in offical svn
, such as "org.eclipse.imp.java.core", just remove or ingore some
instructions in the "IMP Developer's Corner".

4. close some un-completing projects(in my understanding?^_^) and
notes: I close *.formatting,*lpg.analysis.
I add some guessed-implenmentation to *.box
and *.leg. But I'm not sure they will work really^_^ So you can close them
as well.
sdf_eclipse_install,*.pbd seem not existing. So close/ingore/remove their
infos. Remember to DO some cleaning in MF files.

5. arrive here, you will see a litte compiling errors in *imp.mattooling and
*lpg.runtime. There are main errors caused by the API migration. trrival to
correct them.
note: I don't use the patch by Karl(see more:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=221887), the patch seem
seriously to modify the orignal imp. I'm not very sure it is neccessary.

6. After some fixes, there should be no compiling errors.But in fact, there
some runtime errors.
notes:1>
LanguageRegistry#updateEditorRegistry
should use display.asyncExec() to avoild "invalid thread access"
2> a building mistake in *lpg.metatooling make it stop loading when running
form workspace.(maybe pass after deploying?) Delete the "jikespg.jar" in
"Building Configuaration" page, and recorrect them.

7. After 1-6, the basic functionalities seem ready to use. And I migrate the
imp to 3.3/3.4m5. seem no big problem^_^

I add a snapshot in the attachment.

We do understand that it's important, but we were just swamped with
other facets of getting the IMP project up on eclipse.org (navigating
the IP process, for example), and attending EclipseCon last week.

Your contributions are *extremely* helpful; thanks!!! This is what
makes the Eclipse community a great thing to be a part of!

Anyway, we'll be folding the necessary changes into the code base
very soon. Stay tuned!

great work, bob. my recent interesting thing is some language enviroment
creation. I think imp is a great step in this directtion.
we need a work base to help community grown. So, I sugguest to releasing a
workable milestone soonly.
I will try imp more.:) Some collaboration between jdt(and xxxdt), wtp, dltk
seem possible.
