There might be more latest versions than this 3.6, but I recommend to go for 3.6 only, so scroll down the WebTools Downloads page until you locate it with the built name (3.6.0M7).

6. On the WebTools 3.6 page, scroll to Traditional Zip Files and “Web App Developers” for the non-SDK package ZIP and download “wtp4x”.

7. Extract the wtp4x.zip in eclipse folder that will replace corresponding files in Plugins and Features directories.

8. Now open Eclipse again and Add a new server with selection Apache Tomcat v8.0.
