<p align=center>
Back by popular demand, here are some interesting statistics that highlight<br>
the past year of development on Eclipse 3.1. All figures are for the Eclipse 3.1 <br>
development period only, from June 29, 2004, until June 28, 2005, and cover <br>
only the Eclipse SDK components (Platform, JDT, and PDE), and their corresponding <br>
newsgroups, mailing lists, and bugzilla products. Figures on the Eclipse source <br>
code refer to the deployed SDK code, excluding all test and example code. The <br>
<a href="">download</a>
figure is a click count of download requests at, including <br>
downloads served by mirrors. Direct access to mirrors, bit torent downloads, <br>
and other download sharing are not included.
