DevKit plugin changed to no longer permit plugin deployment method to be chosen?

Is the omission from the Plugin Deployment tab of the two radio buttons
for specifying .jar versus exploded plugin deployment intentional? I'll
file a bug if not...

Mark,

It is intentional.
Now you can "Prepare To Deploy" your plugin - means make .zip with all
libraries etc
Or work on your plugin with only one deployment method.

Thanks.

Cool. I saw that menu choice but couldn't see it do anything - I expected
it to deploy the plugin to the sandbox, but I now see that it's created a
.zip file. How is the destination directory chosen? Same as .ipr? .iml?
I have both in the same directory so it's not immediately obvious.

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by this. If I 'make' the module
then it's deployed to the plugin sandbox in exploded form - is that what
you mean?

Should all files in the META-INF directory be included when the .jar
file is built?

Exactly.

file is built?


No. META-INF in .jar includes plugin.xml and manifest.mf only.

Actually, it was really just the manifest file I was thinking about (so I
don't know why I phrased the question that way). Should I be able to
provide my own manifest file (in the same directory as plugin.xml) and
have IDEA include it (perhaps with its own additions) in the .jar file?
Or should I file a request?
