OpenWith integration for Windows

OpenWith integration of NetBeans IDE is now available for Windows. Common file types are registered with IDE. See 57364 for details and list of registered file types. This has been made possible due to integration of new Command line parsing API.


Open Recent File

Feature "Open Recent File" was added to File menu in NetBeans IDE. Feature allows users to reopen documents closed in recent past with ease. See IZ entry #2710 for more details.


Profiler HeapWalker

Profiler HeapWalker improved to handle large heap dumps, performance & memory management improvements #82139


Profiler CPU Live Results

Profiler CPU Live Results "Categorization and DrillDown" - adds the ability to get a highlevel overview of profiling results


Profiler Dynamic attach

This feature allows to attach Profiler to a local application that is already running. This method does not require special command line options or environment variables. It uses new Attach API and therefore both NetBeans Profiler and profiled application must run on JDK 1.6.


JMeter available on development update center

JMeter integration module was moved from NetBeans Profiler 6.0 to NetBeans 6.0 development update center. This will allow users to use JMeter load generator without NetBeans Profiler. This also means that NetBeans Profiler 6.0 Milestone 4 will no longer contain JMeter integration module and the profiler download size will drop to 8.5M.

Preferences API
