Current status on Roo addon with Spring Tools IDE and Surf?

Hello!

I'm new to Alfresco and I'm looking  to use its CMS capabilities for a project that I'm working on. It looks like a great tool and have found several tutorials to use it and work with scripts in order to modify the content and work along with it.

Sadly most of the video tutorials are quite old and it seems that all the tools and addons are no longer working
-SpringSource Tool no longer supports SpringSurf last relese (1.0.0) due to FreeMarker dependencies
-Spring Roo newest version no longer recognizes the spring-surf-addon

Having this, how Alfreco development should be addressed? I understand that it is still heavily based on Surf but, what development tools can I use then? Eclipse (newest version)? WebScript Library?

Should I not consider Roo anymore?

I really appreciate any help on this. Thanks a lot in advance!
Daniel
