Gecos is an open source software and is hosted on Inria GForge.
For users unfamiliar with Eclipse, we currently provide three versions of a bundle Eclipse distribution including gecos, CDT and Xtext. If you don't want to mess with Eclipse update sites, this is definitely the way to go.
Important : In order to get the latest GeCoS version, please check for updates after installing the Eclipse bundle (“Help” → “Check for Updates”).
