Eclipse plugins and the version

Trouble with installed plugins that aren’t update completly if you do not change the version number? But you do not want to set it higher for every test. Then it helps to use the qualifier. Set the version string fo your plugins as follow 1.2.3.qualifier and on deploying disable qualifier replacement with a static string under the options tab. Voila. Eclipse will replace the qualifier string with the current timestamp on every deployment.
