Segger Embedded Studio is not Eclipse based and it is written in Qt. It has a much cleaner interface, but I haven't used it, because I don't have a Jlink or a spare STLink that I could "switch" to Jlink mode.

Thanks..

It looks a lot like Eclipse, so I thought it was a heavily customised version of Eclipse.
Personally I didn't find it that easy to use, so I uninstalled it.

Its also rather expensive at around $1000.

@pito
Have you tried it ?
I tested this on 2 different types of "dongle" and it would not install on either
@Roger: As I wrote above you need a small fw mod, but no idea how to do it..

UPDATE: tried here (for my educational purpose only) and it upgraded fine, recognized as
J_ST_LINK.JPG
J_ST_LINK.JPG (19.93 KiB) Viewed 108 times
.
No "nag" screens, no annoying messages or warnings. Works like a standard J-Link.
.
UPDATE1: downgraded back to ST-link ok.
.
UPDATE2: upgraded again and read BPill's flash via J-Flash
J-Flash via JST_link.JPG

NOTE: I did not try to run it as the Debugger inside Sloeber or Ozone. It should work fine, however :)

UPDATE3: I downgraded back to ST_Link as it is not allowed to use it outside the eval-boards :(

Limitations (from their web page):
May be used with ARM based ST devices only
Only debugging on evaluation boards is allowed. Debugging on custom hardware is not supported and not allowed
No production flash programming support
Unlimited breakpoints in flash available for evaluation only
No support is given
:)
