According to the Stack Trace it seems the issue is actually not in the GWT plugin but in the Eclipse Google plugin
So, not sure how that one is maintained and updated.
It isn't. It is deprecated and scheduled for deletion in January 2018. You should use Cloud Tools for Eclipse if you need AppEngine.
