First of all: many thanks for this plugin that is probably the most useful I have installed (except maybe Eclipse itself ;-))

As specified in the Beyond Compare documentation, the command line options must be prefixed with the '-' character instead of the '/' (that is a valid path file character in Linux). So, it would be nice if this character could be changed in the preferences.

    I assume you're using Beyond Compare 3 right? I'm actually just working on fixing the BeyondCVS plug-in to work properly with Beyond Compare 3. Stay tuned!

    Thanks for the bug report.

    You are right, I use BC 3, excuse me having missing this information.

    I take this opportunity to ask you also to not forget the subclipse plugin user: I've not be able to use the version 0.7.5 with it.

    Thanks a lot again for your plugin.

    Hi again,

    I've actually been working with the Subclipse team this last week to make it easier to integrate my BeyondCVS plugin with Subclipse, so as soon as they come out with a new version then I should be able to get my plugin working again. There were some big changes in the Subclipse plugin recently which broke all my stuff. I'll get my stuff up here on Sourceforge as soon as I can.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    I'm also a big fan of this plugin!

    I've downloaded the new 0.8 version and everything stopped working for me.
    The plugin does not exist in eclipse.
    Downgraded back to 0.7.4 that I used before - all's well.
    (I'm using Beyond Compare 3 on Windows and attempting to use this no on Linux).

    I upgraded my Eclipse from 3.3.1.1 to 3.4 and the new plugin version 0.8 works fine on Windows.
    Thanks!

    However, on Linux, any version that I tried (Eclipse and the plugin) is no success.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Eynat

     
  • Hi,
    Thanks for reporting a problem.

    I've tested it on Linux (Debian) and Eclipse 3.4 (classic download) with BC 3.0.4 and it worked fine for me with files in CVS.
    I did find some problems with the Subversive plug-in though. It was incorrectly requiring Java 1.6, so I've fixed that problem and uploaded a new version (0.8.1).

    Were you trying to use it with Subversive? Or with CVS? If it still doesn't work for you please let me know. If it does work then I'll close this bug.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hi,

    I use SVN with subclipse and your 0.8.1 version works perfectly for me.
    The only remaining problem is that the documentation is not so clear for subclipse and does not mention explicitely that the org.eclipse.externaltools.svn.subclipse_0.7.4.jar must remain in the plugins subdirectory of Eclipse... In any case, I had to do so to have all the things functioning correctly...

    More one time, many thanks for your plugin and ... at the next bug!
    Paul

     
  • Okay, I've uploaded the Subclipse version (0.8.1), give it a try. Please note that it requires version 1.4.4 (or later) of Subclipse to work.
