Re: Regression bug in 0.9.33

This isn't a bug -- exactly. The issue is that you do not have JavaHL
installed. On 0.9.32 if you did not have JavaHL, then Subclipse would fall
back to using the command line adapter. As of 0.9.33, we now include a
pure Java option -- JavaSVN, that we fall back to. JavaSVN is an enormous
improvement over the command line adapter (and even over JavaHL in some
areas). There is one notable exception and that is that JavaSVN does not
support file:// URL's, and will not ever.

You can change to the command line adapter in your Team -> SVN Preferences
to get back to the 0.9.32 behavior. The better options are to:

1) Install the JavaHL Subversion library. See our FAQ at

2) Run a local svnserve server and use the svn:// protocol with JavaSVN.

#2 is very easy to do. With #1 it depends on how comfortable you are
building from Subversion from source.
