Summer 10 force.com IDE plugin slows development

With the Summer 10 eclipse plugin update, there is a change which is slowing down development considerably.


When you save a file, it is sent to the server for compilation and deployment. This happens in the background so you can get on with your next change while waiting for the compilation results.


However with the introduction of the Summer 10 plugin, switching to another Apex class file in Eclipse is dependent on the save action completing, so you are stuck with a modal dialog preventing you from doing any further work in the IDE. As a project grows in size, it is not uncommon to have to wait 20-30 secs for this to complete - as this happens frequently, it's really wasting developer time.


Please can the plugin developers consider removing this blockage? It did not used to happen until recently.



That's a good point! I've been getting frustrated too. Mine can take upwards of 5 minutes


1) are you guys experiencing this problem with the new Installer?

2) do you have "Project->Build Automatically" checked.


would it be possible for one of you to attach a screen shot.


Thanks in advance
