Hello,

Im currently trying to adapt plantuml so that I can link back from a diagram directly to the source. To do this I have decided to implement a new linkopener - call it StateLinkOpener (as im primarily working with states). The problem is after defining this class and adding a reference to it in plugin.xml (like the other link openers), it seems that in Activator.java the linkopener is never obtained as an extension in the method processLinkOpeners().

David
