This builder plugin is an addon to the Eclipse >= 3.0 C/C++ Development tools CDT >= 2.0. It was authored by Lothar Werzinger and Rafael de Pelegrini Soares. Early versions were licensed under the CPL (common public license). Later versions were licensed under the EPL (Eclipse public license).

As of January 2009, the last released version was 29 June 2007. Compatibility with CDT 4.0 and CDT 5.0 is uncertain.

The best approach at the moment seems to be to run SCons as an External Tool, which worked for one editor.
