-Version 1.0.0
-* Finally, this plug-in supports Linux and Mac OS and not only Windows!
-* Bugfix: Select File in File Manager option was neither stored nor
- used.
-Version 0.9.0
-* Context Assist for variables in configuration dialog for custom commands.
-* You can now configure the resource type a custom command is intended for,
- either "Files", "Folders" or "Files & Folders". If a custom command that
- is intended for files is execute on a directory, a dialog box with an error
- message is shown and no action is taken. If, on the other hand, a custom
- command intended for a folder is executed on a file, the command
- automatically uses the parent directory. Finally, for a custom command that
- is intended for files & folders, no such check is executed before invoking
- the command.
-* "Copy resource path to clipboard" is now also available from the editor view.
- This didn't make sense before (because it more or less would only copy the
- selected text to the clipboard) but in connection with the feature to use the
- file opened in editor when the text selection is empty this is quite useful.
- By executing this on an empty text selection, you can now copy the path of
- the edited file directly to your clipboard.
-Version 0.8.0
-* Changed behaviour for "Show resource(s) in Windows Explorer" and "Start a
- Windows Explorer in this path": if you select a file (not a directory), the
- corresponding file will be selected in the Windows Explorer instance that is
- to be opened. This new behaviour can be disabled by unchecking "Select File
- In Explorer" in the preference page.
-Version 0.7.0
-* Now it is possible to invoke the StartExplorer commands (predefined and
- custom ones) from the editor window for the file currently opened in the
- editor. If the current text selection is empty, the file being edited will be
- used for "Start Windows Explorer", "Start file with system editor", "Start
- cmd.exe", ...
-* New defaults for custom commands. The default custom command "Edit with
- UltraEdit" has been discarded, instead, there are two custom commands using
- Notepad and one that echos all variables just to showcase which variables can
- be used.
-Version 0.6.2
-* Comprehensive Eclipse Help documenation. Go to
- Help -> Help Contents -> StartExplorer Help
- to read it.
-* Two new variables:
- In addition to ${resource_path}, ${resource_name} and ${resource_parent},
- there are now two new variables:
- - ${resource_name_without_extension}: File name or directory name of the resource,
- without path and without extension
- - ${resource_extension}: Only the file's extension (aka suffix)
