Eclipse Marketplace continues to be the place to discover interesting and relevant Eclipse plugins.  There are  over 100,000 successful installs/month of Eclipse-based products via the Eclipse Marketplace client.    We have a list of the most popular plugins over the last 30 days and all time.   I thought it would be interesting to look at what are the most popular new plugins in the last 12 months.
