Update #1 (25. July 2016)
The WindowBuilder project itself now provides an integration build of WindowBuilder for Eclipse Neon: http://download.eclipse.org/windowbuilder/WB/integration/4.6/ . You can monitor progress of the re-introduction of WindowBuilder into Neon.1 at https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=498276. Thanks to StackOverflow user Mickael for providing this info.
When running WindowBuilder version 1.8.0.r45x201506110827 under Eclipse Neon you will get the following error:
Currently there is no WindowBuilder P2 update for Eclipse Neon. See here and here for more background information. Luckily Lars Vogel stepped up and made some contribution to the project to enable headless Maven Tycho builds. Therefore it is easy to build a WindowBuilder Pro update site yourself:
- Clone the WindowBuilder project from https://git.eclipse.org/r/windowbuilder/org.eclipse.windowbuilder.
- Change to org.eclipse.windowbuilder and run mvn verify.
- The P2 update site will be located under org.eclipse.wb.releng.updatesite/target/repository.
