WindowBuilder is now marked as obsolete in the Eclipse Marketplace, so the question is, what is its replacement?

Thanks.

Hi Cesar,
for what I know WindowBuilder is far from obsolete.
Indeed a search of WindowBuilder on Eclipse Marketplace from Mars IDE does not show me anything (empty list), but I suppose it depends on my installation.
Anyway you can find the udpdate site links here:
https://www.eclipse.org/windowbuilder/download.php

for example, for Mars (4.5) you can use this update site:
http://download.eclipse.org/windowbuilder/WB/release/R201506241200-1/4.5/

there you will find version 1.8.0.r45x201506110820

HTH
Vincenzo

On this page you can find the word "outdated":
http://marketplace.eclipse.org/content/windowbuilder-pro-gui-designer
As far as I remember, WindowBuilder was a Google project and provided in the marketplace (link above), then it was transferred to Eclipse project and is part of the release train. The new project link is the following:
https://www.eclipse.org/windowbuilder/

Rico,
ok, now I see how the doubt of Cesar was triggered. Thanks!
Yes, you are right about the fact that it was a Google project, here other details of the story:

The Marketplace entry referred to the older commercial version of WIndowBuilder (from 5 years ago) . WB was donated to Eclipse.org 4+ years ago and is still available now. The only thing obsolete is the Market place entry itself.
