I always forget, and have to start at
the EPP home page  to get the right links, which still take some "drilling
down" to find the repository, instead of the packages. And, for Neon,
you'd just have to "type over" the 'mars' part of URL and use
BUT THEN, you would have to be sure
what you wanted was actually in there. I have not, for example, updated
the Eclipse and Equinox contribution past our Mars.1 release. That is, until just now. :) So should
get an 'update' in a few hours for you to try out. And this was using our
Platform build from M20151209-1000. I would never contribute a "nightly"
to EPP (we do not even have "nightlies" of our Mars.2 stream),
and I do not believe EPP has any concept of a true "nightly".
It is simply rebuilt whenever anyone makes a new contribution.
As always, caution is urged and these
builds would not be for anyone using them "for production". But,
otherwise, it's great to get the early testing.

Nighly snapshots for simrel and EPP Mars.2 Sent by:
Some users have been asking how to get into their IDE the patches for SWT
on GTK. Although those patch are available and merged, it remains quite
tricky for users of Mars.1 to retrieve them. Indeed, the only 2 alternatives
I'm aware of are: 1. create a new install of Eclipse SDK from Platform 4.5 nightly build
(and re-install everything they need) 2. Install the Platform feature from the 4.5 nightly build (which will
most likely trigger remediation because of the version change in SWT bundle) None of those 2 is very smooth.
So, for those users, the best thing would be to be able to point them to
a nightly build of Mars.2 and EPP packages, containing the latest build
of Eclipse 4.5.2. Then users could add this site to their available software
sites, and try a "Check for updates"/ Is such a site available? Would it be possible to create it?
