I've been using Neon.2 since last year
I just installed Neon.3
All of the tools and plugins I was using are gone and Neon.3 is not aware of any of the projects I had when I was using Neon.2 even though I'm pointing at the same workspace folder.
Where did they go?
How do I get them all back?

I am reinstalling the plugins one at a time. Seems to be working.

Next time, export the installation with File -> Export -> Install -> Installed Software Items to File.

The generated .p2f file can then be imported to the new installation, replacing the missing modules. It is normal that some of the repositories may be gone for the new release, requiring manual intervention.
