In order to install the Git Eclipse plugin you need to have the following
- Eclipse version 3.8.2/4.2.2 or newer
- Since 4.6 JGit and EGit require Java 8.
- A reasonably recent version of Git itself installed on your platform to
take care of what the plugin does not yet do or do things that native
git does better. Some tests have been performed using both Cygwin and MSYS git.
Both have issues that we need both feedback and patches for.
