Connectors Discovery feature

Bug 280889. Subversive's Connector Discovery feature makes the process of finding and installing SVN Connectors much faster and easier than it was in versions before 0.7.8.I20090808-1900, when the installation process went like this:

  • Install Subversive from 2 different update sites: one for SVN Team Provider and another for SVN Connectors
  • There were many combinations for installing Subversive and SVN Connectors, and some of these combinations were not compatible

The Connector Discovery feature greatly simplifies the things. Now you can install only Subversive SVN Team Provider. The next time Eclipse starts, on the first call to any Subversive functionality the Connector Discovery feature will detect that there are no connectors installed and will launch a dialog which displays the SVN Connectors you need and enables download and installation:

Use Equinox secure storage

Bug 295079. As authorization database is superseded by the Equinox secure storage, store secure data in Secure Storage. It was deleted obsolete Password Management page in SVN preferences, instead of it you can manage the list of passwords that have been saved via Secure Storage preference page. On first running of Subversive with Secure Storage support, secure data is automatically migrated from Authorization database, so you don't need to reenter it manually.

Correctly support externals in actions

Bug 290386. Handle resources in external definitions as normal resources, especially it concerns to complex cases of defining externals, e.g. in commit, revert actions, decoration, Synchronize view.

Add ability to specify comments for revision links

Bug 292280. When you add revision link there's ability to specify comment for it; revision link can also be modified(revision and comment). It was changed a little revision links presentation. For instance, you can use revision links when switching between trunk and branches by saving revision.

Extend SVN Info properties

Bug 293016. Separate text and properties status. Previously there was only State property, but it wasn't possible to know from it what exactly and how was modified content or property, e.g. they can be modified at the same time. Add other properties, e.g. Copied etc.
