CND67Plans

The high-level plan for NB6.7

Defining Features:

  1. Refactoring (Catching up with Competition - Eclipse has 5 refactorings vs 1 unofficially supported in NB)
  2. Observability Tools (Gizmo project - D-Light based real-time interactive CPU, memory and synchronization profilers)
  3. Qt Support (Project Level support, Code Assistance, GUI Designer is considered to be external - loose integration is possible). GTK support may be considered later as an enhancement

Target Features:

  1. Discovery improvements, seamless import of typical and well-known Open Source projects
  2. DBX integration (deferred)

Important Enhancements:

  1. Remote Development Easy of Setup & Use (Including Remote GUI development)
  2. Code Assistance Performance Improvements
  3. Improved support for Macro's
  4. Tool collection improvements

Enhancements suggested for 6.7 (QA to review):

  • Projects:
  • Call Graph: pictorial view
  • Code Assistance:
  • tune to match compiler features
  • fast expressions parser
  • Better semantic highlighting
  • GDB enhancements:

  • return value
  • breakpoints disambiguation
  • Editor cool features:
