NetBeans 6.5 slips for 4 weeks

You've probably noticed the change it NetBeans 6.5 schedule already, right? However for those that haven't let me cite Jirka Kovalsky (NetBeans Technical Community Manager ).

Hello developers,

based on the current quality dashboard and feedback from community, a change to the NetBeans 6.5 release schedule [1] has been made. We went through all problematic areas and investigated how much time is needed to meet the FCS quality and according to our findings 4 more weeks will be required.
This in particular means that Code Freeze moves to October 13th and FCS to November 12th.

It is not easy to postpone the release date but we simply want to address recent community feedback coming for example via this mailing list or via bugs that were submitted at high rate of ~400 issues weekly.
However, we believe it will pay off in the end because quality is also a feature, isn't it? :-)

Thanks for your understanding and support!


And we all believe that it will help to release NetBeans 6.5 as more stable product. I will not repeat myself - listen to podcast ;)
