Subversive beats Subclipse as SVN Plugin for Eclipse

I've switched from subclipse to subversive recently. The former used to annoy me by

  • its inability to handle directory moves/copies. I had to go and delete .svn dirs manually

  • The annoying need to do manual updates after each commit

Subversive mostly works in any of these cases. And when it doesn't want to keep track of me moving some directory around, it politely asks me to commit before continuing.
