Release priorities

NetBeans 6.8 primary drivers/features are:

  1. Support for Java EE 6 and Glassfish v3 release, planned for early December 2009
  2. Support for latest release of Java FX

These are two major updates to Java platforms which NetBeans IDE is going to support.

Secondary 6.8 features which are fully staffed by Development and QE will be:

  1. PHP - extend the support for PHP 5.3 and Symphony framework
  2. Maven - Support Java EE 6 and address users feedback
  3. Connected Developers ( - extend functionality, implement instant notifications and improve Jira
  4. Embedded Browser - fully functional embedded browser
  5. Editor & Java Improvements - further improve quality of Editor and Java infrastructure incl. performance
  6. IDE Performance - Improve scanning, navigation in Editor and scalability of IDE
  7. C/C++ support - Extend CND features like dbx, thread analyzer,...

Team will also improve the quality of some modules which were in maintenance mode during 6.7. We call these modules Quality modules and these will have defined P3 bug target, but no big features development will be done on these. A new set of Maintenance modules was selected for 6.8.
