Why is there no Eclipse 3.4 for Debian/Ubuntu? (was Re: [pdt-dev] How to install 'org.eclipse.php_feature')

BTW I am still wondering why Debian based distros stopped supporting latest Eclipse packages.

AFAIK, the people maintaining it moved on to more interesting work. If you're a Debian/Ubuntu user and want to see Eclipse 3.4 or 3.5 as a .deb, consider contributing to the Linux Tools project @ eclipse.org.

If you want a distro that includes Eclipse 3.4+, consider:

Fedora 10 includes Eclipse 3.4.1.
Fedora 11 will include Eclipse 3.4.2, due April 2009.
Fedora 12 will likely include Eclipse 3.5.1, due October 2009.
