I installed the new Webworks 2.1 SDK. How do I access it? Did it simply update the SDK in Eclipse? I poked around a little bit but didn't see any significant change. Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.

The Eclipse plug-in only supports up to WebWorks 2.0... It does not support the v2.1 WebWorks SDK. All WebWorks SDKs for Eclipse install through the Eclipse update site. The maximum version posted up there is v2.0
The Visual Studio Plug-in does not support v2.1 of the WebWorks SDK either.
As part of the End Of Life notice for the Web Plug-ins, only WebWorks SDKs up to v2.0 are supported. There are changes in the WebWorks SDK that we need to make that are not backwards compatible with the end of lifed WebWorks Plug-in tools.

The 2.1 SDK is used in the same manner as the those who do not use the Web Plug-ins for Visual Studio or Eclipse or those using the WebWorks SDK for PlayBook. It is a command line utility.
Adam wrote a nice tutorial on migrating from the plug-ins:

With the webworks plug-in EOL notice does this signify a move away from this SDK. Is it eventually going to be phased out? Or is it just the IDE integration which you are getting rid of? Is this part of a bigger plan to merge the smartphone and tablet SDKs? Ultimately, what is the future roadmap for the webworks stuff? Thanks.

The EOL notice is just for the IDE plug-ins... We are moving the majority of the plug-in functionality to Ripple in order to not be tied to IDE's that are only used by some. You will still be able to use Eclipse and Visual Studio to build a website that can be transformed into a WebWorks app.
The WebWorks platform is going strong with no end in sight. You can always follow our roadmap plans on github. A summary of the different WebWorks projects can be found here:
We'll also be having major changes to the website shortly to better serve the WebWorks community.
