Subclipse 1.1.10 Released

Subclipse 1.1.10 was released today. Details can be found in the changelog.

There are several changes in this release that should address the most common problems reported of late. Most of those are solved by the inclusion of the Subversion JavaHL 1.4.3 libraries and the SVNKit 1.1.1 library. Each of these has several fixes that were affecting Subclipse users.

There was also further refinement to how we handle read only files and the lock dialog when the validateEdit() method is called. This problem really impacted users of the Rational 7.0 IDE's as it seems a lot of their code somehow explicitly calls validateEdit() and bypasses the normal Eclipse ResourceRuleFactory mechanism that should be filtering out any items that are not read-only in the file system. Anyway, with the help of some of our users that were able to test the changes, we seem to finally have all of the scenarios working properly.

Finally, I have a feeling that the next release will finally be the long-awaited 1.2.0 release, which will become our new stable, recommended release. There have been some patches floating around for a couple of new enhancements, and if they get finalized and committed there may be a couple more releases in the 1.1.x line to stabilize those features. But right now, things have very much stabilized and if no new problems show up from this release, I think I will put out the final 1.2.0 release.
