jetty plugin not working for 8.1

hi,

has somebody found a workaround to make jetty plugin work for IntelliJ 8.1?

in my view minor release upgrades really shouldn't break plugin compatibility. bad thing is that jetty plugin is shootout criteria so will most likely step back to 8.0.1.

Unfortunately, plug-in authors face a dilemma: either guess (ahead of
time) the build number ranges Jetbrains will use for each product
version, or omit version dependency declarations entirely from plugin
configuration files (plugin.xml). In the case of the Jetty plug-in I
decided that the former is the lesser of the two evils.

Until I get around to making a new build with revised version dependency
metadata you might try manually editing the META-INF/plugin.xml file
you'll find in the plug-in's JettyIntegration.jar - change the value of
the "until-build" attribute of the "idea-version" element to some
suitable value (e.g. 9999).

thanks.

changing your mentioned files (plugin.xml) in the old config-folder $HOME/.IntelliJIdea80 folder made the trick.

btw, good to know to never delete old IntelliJ configuration folders (thought 8.1 would only read from $HOME/.IntelliJIdea8x).
