Reverting to a local history revision via the Team > Local History > Revert to... menu item and subsequent screen did not work. There was no change in the file contents. However, using the Show Local History > right mouse click > Revert to... did work.
I was reverting to a previous Layer.xml file.
NetBeans 6.8 RC1
caused by changes in the outline view - http://hg.netbeans.org/main-golden/rev/4b6b9ccd18a5 (fix for bug 170863).
Outline view now clears the selection when a dialog is being disposed.
Unfortunately it is too late to have this fix in 6.8, but there's a simple workaround (Show local history and Revert from there). But i think this could be integrated into some upcoming patch.
OK Ondro, thanks for pointing this out - agreed with Patch 1 candidate.
Pavel, could you please verify this issue once we are done with Nb 6.8 ?
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200912051400* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
