I've developed an eclipse plugin which defines extends the project nature extension point. When defining a project nature, its projectNatureId, used by the natures manager is derived from the bundle symbolic name of the plugin and an id, specified in plugin xml file.
Now I've renamed this plugin. The problem is that the projectNatureId is now changed, because of the changed bundle symbolic name and thus all projects, created by the previous version of the plugin, and have the old nature ID are no longer recognized.
Is there a way to resolve this problem? Can I "extend" the previous nature or something similar?
