This week Eclipse Marketplace hit a very significant milestone: 10 MILLION successful installs. What a great example of the vibrancy in the Eclipse ecosystem. Over the last 4 years, Eclipse users have successfully installed a plugin into Eclipse over 10 million times.
Eclipse Marketplace Client was introduced as part of the Helios release in June 2010. It took close to 11 months for Marketplace to reach 500,000 successful installs and another 5 months to hit 1 million in early November 2011. Now just over 4 years since it was launch, we now average over 400K install each month, close to 5 million installs/year. Pretty impressive growth.
It is also great to see diversity of plugins on Marketplace. In the last 30 days, over 70 plugins have been installed over 1000 times and over 300 plugins have been installed at least 100 times. In total we have close to 1800 plugins listed on Marketplace.
Thanks to everyone who has made Marketplace a success. If you are not using Eclipse Marketplace Client to discover and install new Eclipse plugins then this is a perfect time to start!
