Synchronized Project Wizard

The new project wizard has been enhanced so that the remote directory will not be reset if it has already been entered. This improves the project creation workflow.

Synchronized Project Error Messages

If the remote repository is locked for some reason, an error message will be displayed indicating how the problem can be solved.


Connections View

Remote connection information is now shown in a view in addition to the Remote Connections preference page. This allows connections to be manipulated without requiring a model dialog.
