Since today a new version of the ABAP Development Tools for Eclipse 2.13 is available for download on the SAP service market place.
This version is the successor of the ADT 2.7 version and runs against AS ABAP 7.31 SP4 (and higher) and AS ABAP 7.4.  
Just go to the SAP Software Download Center and ‘Search for Software Downloads‘ using the keywords ‘ABAP Eclipse‘ and install the 2.13 version. A detailed installation guide is also available as attachment of SAP Note 1886449.
This version is also available on our SAP Updatesite for the Eclipsetools:
Besides a bunch of software fixes the new version also contain some new cool features that I will introduce shortly:
Automatic syntax check for source code objects
With this nice little feature you will get much faster feedback on syntax errors within your source code. When you switch-on this feature in the settings, the syntax check is triggered automatically while you are typing in the ABAP editor. You don’t have to press CTRL-F2 or the check button in your IDE. Try it out, you will love it. See more details in the blog post from Michael Schneider
Automatic code completion

One of the most important features within source code editing is code completion. CTRL-SPACE is your best friend when you need information about the components of an identifier that you use in your code, be it a method, a function module or a component of a structure. With ADT 2.13 you will get this information now automatically without pressing CTRL-SPACE. Just enter a component selector (->, =>, – or ~) and the editor will list all relevant components immediately. See more details in the blog post from Michael Schneider

Web Dynpro ABAP Tools
With ADT 2.7 we introduced the Web Dynpro ABAP tooling in eclipse which is supported for AS ABAP 7.31 SP7 (and higher). Besides some important bug fixes we also introduced new features within the ADT 2.13 version to simplify your life in the area of controler editing and view designer.

        Thanks for this info.

        Probable this is the reason, that I could update my “separate” Eclipse IDE with the new ADT, but couldn’t manage it in the HANA Studio.

        I just searched for “ABAP DEVELOPMENT TOOLS” and I got hits for all versions that have been released so far. Hopefully this was just a temporary hick-up. Please let us know if you still don’t find the latest version.

          Hi Felix,

          I still can’t find the new Version…. The latest version I can find in SWDC is version
          2.0 patch level 6 which was released in February.

      I just check Version 2.17 is available for me.

      I used the search function with the term “abap development tools”.

      Good luck,

    I just installed the new version, but now ADT doesn´t find the saplogon.ini anymore.

    So, my existing connections to SAP systems are not working and I cant create new ones either.

    The error message is: SAP LogonPad system configuration not found

    How was the behaviour of the saplogon information changed?

    By the way, it would be nice to have a possibility to select which saplogon.ini should be used by eclipse. Because there are environments where you have several of them.

    EDIT: the question is already solved by this thread:
