Hurray.. sort of.. Looks like they fixed the bug.. however, designer still crashes when I bring up the designer in swing
What do you mean by "crash"? At the moment, Swing support in Designer is hard coded to be disabled under the Mac, so I wouldn't expect it to work. It shouldn't crash though.
On our end, we need to confirm that the problem is truly fixed. Once we do that, we will need to enable Swing support in the product. Designer will need to check that the correct version of Eclipse 3.2 is being used (the fix will not work with earlier versions of Eclipse) and that the Apple patch is present.
