Yes, just download the new Eclipse and unzip it. When you run it, you will get a dialog box asking you to locate your workspace. Navigate to your workspace, wherever you put it, and click OK. That's all you need to do.

Hint: there's a checkbox in that dialog that says "Don't ask me this again" or something like that. Don't check it, let Eclipse ask you every time. Otherwise (if you are like me) you will forget where your workspace is and the next time you install a new version, you will have to hunt all over your disk to find it.

Also, if your workspace is inside the directory of a previous version of Eclipse, it would be a good idea to move it somewhere else now, as part of your cutover to the new version. Then you can delete the old version of Eclipse from your disk without accidentally deleting all your projects.
