Known issues in the AccuRev Plug-In for Eclipse
• If upgrading from an older plug-in, the user may encounter some exceptions from the Eclipse core. The upgrade doesn’t remove the older version plug-in .jars, which might cause plugin registration issues and initialization errors. It is recommended to do run eclipse with the “-clean” argument after upgrading. If this error still occurs, uninstall the plug-in and do a fresh install of the new plug-in.
• If a user creates Eclipse projects with .accurev in its parent/root directory, the project will get mapped as an AccuRev project, even if it's not a valid AccuRev workspace. If the user wants, the user can un-share the project from AccuRev context menu to convert it into a normal Eclipse project.
