Description joememberships 2016-04-22 17:57:24 UTC
Upgraded from Netbeans 8.0.2 to 8.1

Had existing project that contains composer.json file.

The name of the Netbeans project and the name entry in the composer.json file are different. 

After upgrade, all files in or below directory containing composer.json are affected.

When a file is opened it is associated with a non-existent project using the name from the composer.json file.

Under the "File" menu the following entries are grayed out:
Close Project (Composer Project Name)
Close Other Projects
Project Properties (Composer Project Name)

The two workarounds that I've come up with are:
1) remove or rename the composer.json file.
2) Deactivate the Composer plugin.

This also happens with bower.json files. Not sure what plugin would need to be deactivated.
Comment 2 Tomas Mysik 2016-04-25 05:37:33 UTC
Yes, you are right. We are doing our best to fix all issues that are related to this feature.

Thanks for reporting and sorry for inconveniences.
