NOTE: This is an update to the original announcement. On 8/29/2004 we updated all of the full installers for all platforms and the update site to include all quick fixes. If you're unsure, you can check to see if the fixes have already been applied by navigating to Window > Preferences > MyEclipse. The ID with the quickfixes installed will read 3.8.1+QF20040825. If you need to install the quickfixes manually, please see the instructions below.
Please do *not* attempt to install it on any version of MyEclipse other than 3.8.1
. Each quickfix is a cumulative patch, so you can install it one a base 3.8.1 installation or on an installation into which previous quick fixes are applied.
This fix addresses the following problems that have been reported on the forums:

The QuickFix is located at:
To install it, exit Eclipse and unzip the quick fix archive directly into <myeclipse-inst-dir>/eclipse/plugins
. You should choose to overwrite files, when prompted. Please note, the quickfix contains only the subsets of several plugins that changed, not the complete plugin so please don't choose an extraction method that overwrites the entire plugin directory
. On Windows, simply unzipping with WinZip or using the XP file explorer to copy the folders into the plugins directory will "do the right thing".
Once the quickfix is installed, start eclipse with -clean command line option
to insure installation of the new jars. To verify the installation, open Window > Preferences > MyEclipse and you should see a version of number of: "3.8.1+QF20040825".
For those with dialup access, we've done our best to minimize the distribution size by only providing plugin subsets. The archive file is only 2,492,055 bytes for your downloading convenience.
