  9. Select the latest version inside bzr-eclipse (actual)
  10. Click Finish, and this will launch a wizard (license agreement, etc).
  11. Restart Eclipse. Make sure to restart it with "-clean" switch
  12. Go to: Window --> Preferences --> Team --> Bazaar. Enter the path to the bzr executable.

Known bugs
