Installing JProfiler plugin to IDEA 4.0 on OSX

I've got JProfiler working well on OSX, and I've got IDEA 4.0 working well on OSX. However when I try to install the plugin it asks me for the IDEA folder and does not allow me to select the .app. I put the .app in a folder but now it complains about no plugins folder.

Where is the IDEA plugins folder on OSX now? What folder should I select? Anybody have this working?

Thanks,

Vince

You have to do this by hand, currently. The plugins folder is hiding
inside the app bundle. To see it, select "show package contents" from
the context menu for idea.app in the finder, and drag the jprofiler
integration jar into the plugins folder thus revealed. (For what it is
worth, I approve of this design decision in general, but here is one
area that is problematic.)

Again, you must install using the finder, after performing a "show
package contents" on Idea.app. If this bugs you, file a bug with the
jprofiler folks. They need to set a special flag in the JFileChooser to
have it ignore an app bundle, which they have not done. Still, a manual
install does work.
