Known Problems in TM 2.0 RC1
|188939||Terminal does not connect||The Terminal does not connect unless RXTX serial library is installed. As a workaround, either install RXTX, or downgrade to the Terminal 2.0M6 download until this is fixed.|
|179937||(BIDI) File and Path names in files tree do not honor encoding||On dstore, launch the server with proper encoding parameter. Multiple servers may be needed for multiple different encodings on the same host. We are working on a host-wide encoding control to specify the default encoding for a connection, including file and path names. Will be done for RC1 or RC2.|
|181458||Cannot drag&drop / copy&paste from or to Windows Explorer||For small files, it should work now since the drag event already initiates a download. But if you drop before the download is done, it will fail. A proper fix will need a fix in SWT. Workaround: Copy&Paste to the RSE "Local" file system instead.|
|160293||RSE perspective doesn't start if only Core is installed||Install at least a service plugin (SSH, FTP...)|
