Fortran and Eclipse on the Mac - Addendum

This is about updating Eclipse, PTP, and the Fortran compiler to their latest versions. Beth Tibbitts of the Eclipse Parallel Tools Platform (http://eclipse.org/ptp) told me how to do it via the Photran Information mailing list (photran[a t]eclipse.org).

Here is how she explained it to me:

Your description uses the original versions of Helios (and PTP, and Photran) instead of the SR1 release in September.
That URL should be
Or even better: Tell them to go to http://eclipse.org/downloads/ and click on "Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers" which will always get the latest version. (Now it's Helios SR1.)
Using your update site instructions *will* correctly install PTP and Photran at 4.0.3 and 6.0.3 versions.
Then if you do a Help > Check for Updates -- it will update things to the SR1 level.

In fact, PTP itself had some slight updates even since then.
Perhaps not critical, but handy to know how to do:
Your PTP should then be at 4.0.5 and Photran at 6.0.5 (your instructions show 4.0.0 and 6.0.0)

And here are some snapshots I took while I was following her instructions:
