0000144: Feature request: provide omnet package updates in eclipse
Hi there,
I want to suggest an idea for update handling of Omnet in eclipse: is there a way of providing updates for the installation instead of downloading everything again? I don't know how much complicated that might be, but it will save at least some bandwidth...

Not really feasible. The OMNeT++ IDE is tied to the particular Eclipse version, so a separate download is not such a good idea (just another point where things can go wrong.)

We are still forced to use some internal APIs which could break when eclipse is updated. At the moment we are planning only to distribute the whole package together. The update URL is already specified in the IDE, so we can provide fixes to the IDE any time we decide.
