Download Milestone download
Stabilization Nov 20th-Nov 24th
Released Nov 29th


What's New and Noteworthy

The biggest change in M5 is new Java/Editor infrastructure. The milestone also includes some smaller new features:

  • Ant processes have a progress indicator in the status line.
  • A new "project group" feature has been added.
  • CVS History Panels show Tags and Branches.

Due to the integration of the new Java language infrastructure, most Java EE development features are disable in Milestone 5. The features that do work include most web development support, including web project, JSP/HTML editor, deployment, web tier debugging, HTTP monitor etc. Also Mobility and Profiler functionality isn't completely updated for new Java infrastructure hence Mobility and Profiler packs are not released for M5.


Review full list of new M5 features for complete picture of what's new in M5. M6 will be stabilized during a week of Jan 2nd and released around Jan 8th.
