Kepler is best. –  SalesforceAspiration Aug 26 at 7:45

The easiest way to find out which version is supported is to check it on the Force.com Plugin page:

https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Force.com_IDE_Installation

Prerequisites (for the 26 August 2014)

Java SE Development Kit (JDK), Runtime Environment 7 —the plug-in will fail to load if you don't have the full Java 7 JDK (note: the full JDK is not the default JRE installation on Mac OS X)
Eclipse Juno (4.2) or Eclipse Kepler (4.3) — the 'Eclipse IDE for Java Developers' distribution is strongly recommended

Does Kepler supports direct sync with server? –  Sindoora Aug 26 at 8:40
    
@Sindoora You need to check a Kepler documentation for that. If you mean Force.com IDE - yes, it can be in sync with a server. –  mast0r Aug 26 at 8:43
    
i think we have to do manual sync before saving in kepler –  Sindoora Aug 26 at 9:01
    
@Sindoora It depends on the Force.com IDE version. In a new version it is set to "work offline" by default. –  mast0r Aug 26 at 9:06
    
Thank you MastOr –  Sindoora Aug 26 at 9:07

Juno works fine for me. Although I prefer Sublime Text with MavensMate.
