The Linux Tools project aims to bring a full-featured C and C++ IDE to Linux developers. It builds on the source editing and debugging features of the CDT and integrates popular native development tools such as the GNU Autotools, Valgrind, OProfile, RPM, SystemTap, GCov, GProf and LTTng. Current projects include Autotools build integration, a Valgrind heap usage analysis tool and an OProfile call profiling tool. It also has projects implementing LTTng trace viewers and analyzers.
Linux Tools also provides a place for Linux distributions to collaboratively overcome issues surrounding distribution packaging of Eclipse technology. The project produces both best practices and tools related to packaging. Since the 0.3.0 release, one of the features is a source archive of the Eclipse SDK that can be used by all Linux distributions building and distributing it.
