I'm trying out the new Force.com IDE plugin (184.108.40.206406301722), under Eclipse Kepler (SR2, build 20140224-0627).
When I now save an Apex class, the class does not get automatically deployed to the server (as it used to in the older plugin). Instead, I get the "File only saved locally, not to server" marker, and have to manually right-click and select Force.com > Save to Server. This is much worse than before, not only because of the extra clicks, but I now get a popup window which blocks my UI until the deployment is over. Saving a single class also appears no faster, and maybe even slower, than it was in the old IDEE.
Under the "Project" menu, I do have "Build Automatically" checked. I also have checked all the Force.com and Project Preferences and can't find any other setting that would control this.
Is this a change in functionality, or is there some shortcut or setting I'm missing?
