Download KNIME Features using the KNIME Update Site
Additional KNIME plug-ins may be obtained via the KNIME update site which contains additional nodes/functionality for the KNIME workbench:
http://www.knime.org/update/2.7/ (Do not use with KNIME 2.6!*)
Alternatively, the KNIME update sites can be downloaded as a zip file:
* Due to the update in 2.7 to use Eclipse 3.7 and Java 7, it will not be possible to perform an update from KNIME 2.6 to KNIME 2.7. If you are using 2.6 or earlier, please start with a clean installation of KNIME 2.7.
KNIME Desktop is linked automatically at the KNIME Update Site through the File menu via the "Install KNIME Extensions" command. Using this command is the recomended way to use the KNIME Update Site.
If you are using KNIME Developer, a pre-existing Eclipse installation, or are working in an environment with limited interect access, another option for installing KNIME extensions is available. To access this additional dialog use the Help -> "Install New Software" command. This tool has a different interface that allows update sites to be manually specified. Clicking on "Add..." button (illustrated below) will allow you to either manually specify the url of the KNIME Update Site or use the offline (.zip) version of the Update Site to customize your KNIME installation.
(Note that it is important not to unzip the archived KNIME Update Site file prior to specifying it as an update source for KNIME.)
Now you should see a listing of the different categories of the update site.
You may now select the features you want to install. Upon selecting each feature, you are provided with a short description. If you select a feature and receive an error message stating that the selected feature requires a certain other plugin as a dependency, click the "Select Required" button and it will attempt to auto-select all other dependencies for installation. (Note, that KNIME requires GEF 3.6.1; this may or may not already be installed in case you are using an existing Eclipse installation -- it may be necessary to install it in advance.)
Clicking "Next" will take you to the license agreement. If you agree, click "Finish" to download and install the selected features.
