I haven't figured out how to use the Hot Swap with the new 5.0 JDE.
In Eclipse on the other hand it works like a charm though.
I used to always debug with the JDE because I'm on a Windows 7 64bit BUT I can say that it works great with the new plugin (1.1.2) including the hot swap. It might not be supported but it works!
I used the Eclipse updater to update the plugin and component pack.
Excellent job, RIM!

> the Release Notes said that you needed to update the pointer to 22.214.171.124 to use the new pack
Ok so at least I did that part correctly
I have got the simulator to run now (weirdly without any errors at all, not even the missing debug info one). I tried Clean Simulator from the blackberry menu but that doesn't appear to do anything. So I went to \plugins\net.rim.ejde.componentpack5.0.0_126.96.36.199\

In Eclipse, leave the simulator running, change some code, and then click on the debug button again (or select the debugger setting that you are currently running).
It should show a Packaging Dialog and you will see in the Simulator how the debugger reattaches.
I dont know for sure but I think this is how it works. It only takes seconds though to switch out the build and the simulator is not closed in between.
I hope this helps.

Another noticable and great change is Preprocessor flags that are predefined based on which SDK you pick.
I removed all my flags that indicated which OS version I was targetting and am now using this exclusively and it works great.
The flags are below (flags only applicable if you have each version of the SDK installed):
So no need to go into your XML descriptor to edit your preprocessor flags (or project properties for the 1.0 folks). If you use the above, when you target a new OS, your code will preprocess based on the flags set.
Cool feature that I was hoping would make it in.

@austin: In the release notes it also says that if you upgrade the plugin from Eclipse the clean simulator button will not work.
