NetBeans 6 Milestone 10 Released

Here. Includes:

Ruby Debugger enhancements
Plugin Manager allows you to distribute groups of IDE components
Visual Designer with a new look and feel
More Ajax enabled components from Project Woodstock
Struts 1.3.x files are recognized by the IDE
UML Source Code Synchronization
and more

One gotcha I hit on my Mac was that the installer came up with a weird message about Milestone 9! Turns out that if you've installed Milestone 9, then deleted or moved it, this error comes up. Easiest workaround is to delete the .nbi directory in your home folder, and restart the install.

Why the .nbi directory exists or why the installer cares is what bugs me. Shades of the illbegoten "productregistry" file. Grrr!

Not to worry, once installed, lots of goodness to enjoy.

Comments:

David, I got the same error too (and another set of errors for a previous development release). The wording of the error message was really strange and neither of the "OK" or "Cancel" options sounded very desirable. I ran the "uninstall" on M9 and then reran the M10 install and got no errors.

That was the heavy-duty approach :-) An alternative to deleting the .nbi directory is to take the OK choice in each of those dialogs (3 in all, I think) Regards, David

Don't use Matisse in M10 and then try to use 5.5.x - it doesn't work! I made this mistake and had to move to using M10.
