Re: Re: [Subclipse-users] Select unversioned resources on commit

I do not believe anything has changed here. We included and select
unversioned files by default. There is a checkbox on the dialog that
says whether to show them at all. On some versions of Linux, there is
an SWT bug that prevents those checkboxes from showing, so we also put
everything on to the right-click menu which seems to work everywhere.
See attached screenshot (which unfortunately did not capture the
right-click menu popup as I had hoped it would).
