I'm not sure what you mean by it's called 'Eclipse Installer 2020-06 R' . Do you mean the path from which it's downloaded, e.g., oomph/epp/2020-06/R/eclipse-inst-win64.exe?|
If you look on this folder, all the current and older versions of the installer are available:
And there is an index file of them:
The R versions are the released versions. There can be M and RC versions as well, for the milestones and release candidates before the final release. There might also be an Ra, or an Rb version if I needed to respin the release for some reason.
Oh, maybe you mean on this page?
This page is generated from the installer-index.xml mentioned above.
In any case, all these installers are "restricted" to install only products/packages for that corresponding release of Eclipse (when used in simple mode). Whereas the following ones are unrestricted and can install any version of Eclipse even in simple mode:
The installer itself is self-updating, so you don't actually need to download a new one each time, but rather update it; updating it removes the restrictions...
