Description Pavel Buzek 2001-07-20 12:18:14 UTC
Provide a smooth transition from 3.2 to 3.3. Probably combination of Import project wizard + support for creating projects from DOs in filesystems (for 
users who did not use projects in 3.2).

> filesystems they are looking for disappear. We need to have a nice way

> their classpath and development settings continue to function when they
> try to compile their code.

User should be able to open 3.2 project, she will be asked to permit conversion of project into the 3.3. 
When permitted 3.2 project will be converted to 3.3. This will work either when user opens 3.2 project 
from her user.dir or when she imports 3.2 project from another loaction, both actions will be accessible 
from Project Manager.

Comment 2 Vitezslav Stejskal 2001-10-12 11:50:16 UTC
Done. The 3.2/3.1 projects are openable in the 3.3 IDE, they are automatically 
converted to 3.3 format. Original copy of imported project stays untouched when using 
Project Manager | Import. Keeping the original copy of userdir will be solved at the 
level of Import Settings Wizard (see nbdev thread ).
