One way is to go to the Help-->about screen there you can get the installed plugins and its details else you can go to Help-->Software Updates-->mange Configuration.

thanks george, can I get the same plugin information from the command-line of the OS? In my case, I'm using linux. If so, how can I accomplish this?

That is not listed, any where in eclipse as far as I know. There might be a way to get the details of the plugin programatically. But I am not sure.
