NetBeans671

No real dates, no plans .... DRAFT !!!

Planned for NetBeans 6.7.1:

  1. Fix issues we didn't fix into NB 6.7 FCS - 67patch1-candidate, 67patch1-fixed, 67patch-candidate
  2. NetBeans 6.7 Support for Java FX
  3. Code Base based on release67_fixes clone
  4. using the same userdir, different UC - pointing to 6.7 one (temporary in case we'll need another update just for 6.7.1 we'll create separate one), no change in User Registration version number, change in Uninstallation Survey version number

Affected Distributions:

Distribution Solution Notes
all NetBeans 6.7.1 installers rebuild
NetBeans IDE 6.7 for JavaFX 1.2. replace NB 6.5.1 bundle
Python EA2 not affected Dima : how about to do the respin including 2 fixes from Tor regarding update to Jython 2.5 (final)?
J2SE bundle with JDK6u15 rebuild ???? ... scheduled for July 28
J2SE bundle with JDK5u20 rebuild ??? ... scheduled for July 28
NB 6.7 EE Tools bundle rebuild ???
Ubuntu 9.04 packages no rebuild (use UC) ??? default: OpenJDK 6 b14 - should be fine. Sun JDK 6u12 is available from Multiverse repository
FedoreCore 11 packages no rebuild (use UC) ??? default: OpenJDK 6 b14 - should be fine. No Sun JDK available
OpenSolaris 2009.06 packages no rebuild (use UC) ??? default: Sun JDK 6u10
6.7.1 DVD update build new version by the end of July
Community Builds Dima: Need to create 6.7.1 build ("fcs") with community contributed languages and have the ability to continue making builds after "fcs". That could lead to necessity of release671 clone in order not to propagate unnecessary and unexpected fixes in community build (not yet in checklist).
