Git Plugin missing?

I've just installed 8995 for Mac OS X and I don't have a bundled Git plugin any more. Any idea why? My last installation was 8975 which did have the plugin.

Hi,

I have the same problem on Windows. Why this plugin has been removed?

Thanks

Hello Nithia,

plugin any more. Any idea why? My last installation was 8975 which did
have the plugin.


The git plugin will not be included in the final 8.0 release because it hasn't
reached production quality yet. EAP builds for 8.0 bugfix update will have
the plugin bundled again. For the time being, it shouldn't cause any breakage
if you copy the git plugin from 8975 into the plugins directory of later
builds.

Could you guys make the git4idea plugin available somewhere for us folks who can't wait for the first bugfix EAP? I understand why you didn't bundle the plugin with the final release, but it would be nice to still be able do download it separatedly.

Alternatively, just copy it over from a pre-release EAP build.


I like the idea of building it myself, but some instructions would be
appreciated -- particularly about what should be bound to the project
libraries named "vcs-api", "vcs-impl", "platform-impl" and "XmlRPC".

The provided .iml is designed to be used as part of IDEA code base. Instead
of using it, you should just create a new plugin module with a regular IntelliJ
IDEA SDK and attach the sources from SVN.

Ah, I see. I got closer to success, but there's a missing method:
CheckboxTree.getCheckedNodes(Class, NodeFilter). Maybe this is something
added after the current release? If yes, it seems I'm out of luck.
