  1. Hi Thys,
    what do you think about the Eclipse plug-in for firmware 3.8.2?

    do you think that it works fine?

    I’m evaluating use the plug-in, but in the past I have several problems with this (over firmware version 3.7.2).

    Hi Marcos,
    I recommend downloading the latest Resource Pack from Fixcentral for your specific firmware level (3.8.2) and appliance (XS40, XI50, XB60,XM70):
    (Search for “Resource Pack”)
    I have tested the plugin with 3.8.2 on XI50 and XB60 and it works fine. Let me know if you have any issues.
