Looking at little details, also in the user interface, Eclipse Ganymede is not a stable release. I tried on Linux, so I don't know if things go better with Windows.
The worst part is the update manager: incredibly slow, bad working and hangs frequently; much better the old one.
I lost a couple of hours this morning using the new update manager to install Subversive provided by the Ganymede update site. And after installing it didn't get it working:
SVN: '0x00400006: Validate Repository Location' operation finished with error: Selected SVN connector library is not available or cannot be loaded. If you selected native JavaHL connector, please check if binaries are available or install and select pure Java Subversion connector from the plug-in connectors update site. If connectors already installed then you can change the selected one at: Window->Preferences->Team->SVN->SVN Client. Selected SVN connector library is not available or cannot be loaded. If you selected native JavaHL connector, please check if binaries are available or install and select pure Java Subversion connector from the plug-in connectors update site. If connectors already installed then you can change the selected one at: Window->Preferences->Team->SVN->SVN Client.
...and in the SVN Client connector I get an empty combo box, so I cannot select anything. I already installed everything related to SVN in all the update repositories, and cannot find any "Java Subversion connector" or "JavaHL connector".
It is surprising that SVN integration doesn't come with Ganymede by default.
I am doing last attempts, but if I can't get it working, I'll probably give it a last chance with Subclipse, and if this also doesn't work, I'll go back to Europa. Very sad.
The network proxy management is completely broken. So you may find problem connecting eclipse to internet (and of course in the super buggy update manager), even if your proxy setting are correct. This can contribute wasting your time...
It's the first time I have a so bad feeling on an eclipse release.
Update: Subclipse 1.4.0 works on Ganymede. I give it a second chance.
