OK installed it, but in the course of doing so, it seems, and I may be missing something here, s I say it seems, to have wiped out my history.
Since I use history as my (fantastic, life-saving) version control, I of course was distressed.
My reaction was to backpedal by uninstalling M2 and trying to run the previous milestone, b.
The result was b hung on the splashscreen.
So of course now I am worried and I tried running 6.0. Same thing.
So I reinstalled m2 and it works (thank god) but I have no History previous to the installation.
Is there someway to fool the new milestone into seeing the previous history or will I really screw things up doing that?
Going forward, is there some affirmative, outside-of-intellij way to save my history somewhere safe by copying to a safe place some select files that intellij creates?
I am dependent on my history to a terrifying degree. I back up my project files religiously, but Intellij is so good, I never think what might happen if I lost my history (shudders)...
