As some of you might know, the most widely used Eclipse plugin used
for editing FreeMarker templates is part of the JBoss Tools project.
JBoss Tools 4.4.1 (and Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio 10.1) was
released recently, and contains lot of improvements in the FreeMarker
plugin. See: http://tools.jboss.org/blog/
Note that it's possible to install the plugin alone, without the other
parts of JBoss Tools. In Eclipse, go to "Help" / "Eclipse
Marketplace...", search for "JBoss Tools" version 4.4.1, "Install". A
tree of check boxes will appear, uncheck all (by unchecking the root)
except "FreeMarker IDE".
