I agree, but this has already been discussed, and can't be solved easily.
Without any sponsorship, Ivy and IvyDE are pure community efforts, and
despite being very frustrating as individuals we can't do much about this.
The only thing I can ensure is that a new official version of IvyDE will be
published with Ivy 2.0 final, and that version will allow upgrading Ivy
version without requiring to change IvyDE version (using Ivy as an OSGi
bundle directly in Eclipse). For the moment it's still on the bleeding edge,
I really hope everything will be more stable soon.
