Found in 5.5... Replaced in 6.0

For the 6.0 release of NetBeans IDE, in the category "Gee, that'll come in handy", an honorable mention goes to.... drum roll... the "Find in Projects" dialog box...

...which will transmogrify itself into the "Find/Replace in Projects" dialog box:



Yay! At \*last!\* I cannot begin to tell you how happy that makes me!!!

hi geertjan,

congrats on the beta book.

price : the price for the combo seems to be on the high side. I'm sure atleat 25% of your readers will go the combo route if you make it less than 50 USD.

Look at Pragmatic Programmers -- their bestseller Rails book has the following prices

1) printed book -- 40
2) combo -- 49
3) PDF -- 23.5
I'm sure you'll get a tip or two from them on how they chose that price. At Manning, they also have a good price for a combo.
