    Key Features and Goals. The main goals of NetBeans release 3.4.1 are:

    Release 3.4 Downloads -

    Unofficials ;-)

    The most buzz about NetBeans 3.4.1 "Merak" is that this release should not have happened, because Sun Microsystems officially stated, that since most efforts are now put into the ongoing 4.0 "Yogjakarta" release, it doesn't consider to release any maintenance updates to 3.4 (such as 3.3.1 or 3.3.2 in the past).

    However Sun Microsystems oficially proposed that if volunteer Release Coordinator comes along, it will give some amount of human time and the necessary machine resources to such release. I decided to become one, and now we are coming to what is to be a first-timer in netbeans.org world - volunteer NetBeans release - the Merak. Hopefully the most stable NetBeans release ever before.

    I'd like to thank everybody involved in bugfixing, commiting, feedback gathering and technical issues. These are mostly emloyed by Sun NetBeans developers, who cut off some their private time to invest into NetBeans even more than they are doing now coding the 4.0 release. However the outside-Sun people also helped much in preparing the Merak release, so I hope for a closer union between us and them, between all of us, NetBeans developers.

    Sincerely yours, Maxym Mykhalchuk
