Eclipse - XMLBuddy

Does anyone know if XMLBuddy for M6 works with M7?
On the download page, it suggests...
M6 Special Handling. Installing a new version of a plug-in into M6 (where there is a previous version of the plug-in already installed) requires that you delete the .config folder in the eclipse install folder before re-launching.
That sounds a bit dangerous to me (there's quite a bit of stuff in there!), but am wondering if that's what I need to do, because I comverted my workspace from M5 to M7, and now XML buddy complains that it cannot load some classes.
Any ideas?

The .config folder is just a cache - you can savely delete it and it will get rebuild at the next start of Eclipse. There was a bug in M6 which prevented it from working correctly when you added/removed plugins. This bug should be fixed in M7, so deleting .config shouldn't be necessary any longer.
