Getting Subclipse to Work in Gandymede (Eclipse 3.4)

I just upgraded Eclipse to 3.4 (Gandymede) since the latest upgrade to Flex Builder included support for Gandymede. I did my typical install by extracting the Gandymede tarball and then installed Subclipse through the Software updates (now in Help -> Software Updates...).

It looked like everything installed okay but then when I tried to do an update in an existing project I got an error:

"Unable to load default SVN Client"

The key is to include the SVNKit Adapter JavaHL Adapter when you install Subclipse:

Include JavaHL when installing Subclipse.
Hope that saves some people some time.

NOTE: Thanks to Mark for pointing out the recommended usage of JavaHL instead of SVNKit!
