4.5->6.0 upgrade, Clearcase, change markers broken now?

I've searched and I can't find anything that seems to definitively talk about this.

I just moved from IDEA 4.5 to 6.0. I use clearcase. The clearcase plugin works for me, that's not the issue, though I think this is related.

The change markers no longer work. In 4.5 the change markers would hang around for a long time showing which areas of a file were added/deleted/changed. In 6.0, soon as I save the file, the markers go away. What broke?

It's a serious case of "didn't realize what I had until it's gone". I find myself looking constantly for those change bars because I used them to hunt down all the little debug statements I'd add in while fixing a bug. Now I have to go into the a difference viewer, find a couple changes, back out and remove them...recreate the differenence viewer, find a couple more. Very annoying and slow compared to using the change markers :(

Can anyone confirm this is broken in 6.0 with Clearcase and not just some misconfiguration on my part? I'm using "ClearcaseIntegration" version 1.36.5 by Curtis George. The "ClearcasePlugin" by Jacques Morel didn't work well at all with 6.0. It'd lose track of what files were checked in/out.

Yes, it is broken in 6.0.

Is it still broken?

This is a *major *reason my dev team hasn't upgraded from 5.1 yet.

Hello C. Johnson,

Is it still broken?

This is a *major *reason my dev team hasn't upgraded from 5.1
yet.


As mentioned multiple times, a fully supported ClearCase plugin will be included
with IntelliJ IDEA 7. The ClearCase plugin for IntelliJ IDEA 6.0 is a third-party
release, so if you would like to have it fixed, please contact the original
plugin developers.

One more question, and I did not find this mentioned in the forums... will the ClearCase integration in 7.0 include ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC) support?
