NetBeans 6.0.1 Patch1 Now Available

The NetBeans 6.0.1 Patch1 is now available on the Update Center. The patch includes fixes in modules for Mercurial SCM Plugin, GlassFish Integration, IDE Platform, Java, Java EE, Java Persistence, Java Profiler, JSF, Mobility, Ruby and Rails, Struts, UML, Visual JSF, and Web Applications. For more information, see NetBeans 6.0 Patches Info.

The NetBeans community asked for more frequent updates, and we're responding with a steady flow of minor patches between major releases. The timing of the patches and the number of fixes will vary, but we'll do our best to keep up the pace with solid updates that are valuable to the community.

The update is easy to install when NetBeans 6.0 is running. Just click on the globe in the status bar or go to Tools -> Plugins -> Updates tab. Then click the "Reload Catalog" button and follow the installation instructions.

The patches can also be downloaded as a bundle in zip format from SunSolve

If you want to nominate more bugs to be included in future patches, just take a look at the wiki page.

Comments:

Unfortunately, this update seems to have problems. I'm getting the following error now on startup:

Warning - could not install some modules:
Java Profiler - The module Java Profiler (JFluid) was requested in version >= 1.1.2 but only 1.1.1 was found.
UML - The module UML Core was requested in version >= 1.2.2 but only 1.2.1 was found.
NetBeans Plugin Development - The module Module Build Harness was requested in version >= 1.10.2 but only 1.10.1 was found.

If you're running NetBeans under Vista and have set the option "force install into shared directories", NetBeans will output some bizarre failure messages on its next startup about some plugins not being the correct version. You only have the choice to disable the plugins or exit the application at that point.

The problem it seems is that this process is not aware of UAC. Start NetBeans using "Run as Administrator" then perform the upgrade to get this configuration to work properly under Vista.

Patrick - Thanks for giving the answer to your question. There's an FAQ about the problem at http://wiki.netbeans.org/FaqInstallPluginVista. I was about to mention the FAQ and ask if you're using Vista, when you gave the answer.

You sure about this URL. It says "This page does not exist. Why don't you go and create it?".

Is there any open issue about making NetBeans UAC aware? I would be more interested in tracking that.

Try http://wiki.netbeans.org/FaqInstallPluginVista for the FAQ. In my earlier reply, the period at the end of a sentence was incorrectly included when you clicked the URL.

That FAQ includes a link to closed issue about the UAC problem. I did not see any open issues. I searched for closed issues with "user account control" in a description, and found a bunch. For example, http://www.netbeans.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=122186 has a good discussion. The others I found are:
