It's Official! The Next NetBeans Version Will be 5.0
Admin, 05 Sep 2005
Taken from Judith Lilienfeld's post to nbusers :
We want to thank you for your input and voting on the version
number for NB.next. We also want to thank David Strupl for creating and
posting the polling box. The vote was really close. We took the
feedback from David's poll as well as responses that came in before that
and decided to go with NetBeans 5.0.
There is so much new and cool stuff in the next version as well as the
opportunity to sync us up with the J2SE version number that NetBeans 5.0
just seemed like the way to go. We will have the release of Matisse,
plug-in/NetBeans Platform development support, new CVS, profiler,
support for JBoss, Weblogic, Struts, JSF, new code completion,
error stripe, editor hints, code templates, background scanning,
many new refactorings, new Tools | Options, ant debugger, xml
editor improvements, module manager, JSP and HTML palette...whew...
Beta is coming soon..we look forward to your feedback.
