> We are working hard since about 2006 to create good C++ support for Eclipse CDT. We implemented large parts of CDT's refactoring infrastructure and used it in a variety of plug-ins we provide free of charge. Some of our tools actually made it into CDT or at least into Eclipse marketplace (metriculator, CUTE plug-in).

I am very intrigued by this!

What plug-ins have you developed beside metriculator and CUTE?

That sounds wonderful! I have been wanting to try out template aliases, but
have been holding back because Eclipse doesn't support them yet.

Are these patches publically available? Have they been submitted to Eclipse?
