    LIMBO binaries are available for download on our Eclipse Update Site:

    Source code and example models are available on GitHub:

    If you intend to develop Eclipse plugins for LIMBO or using LIMBO, please refer to this LIMBO Architecture description.

    An even further in-depth description of LIMBO's code structure can be found as part of this Master Thesis (pages 37-51). This document also includes a thorough documentation on which parts of LIMBO's code are generated and which are not.
