NetBeans Podcast Episode 46

A very crowded NetBeans Podcast this month. As usual, it would have been impossible without Lloyd, who [apart from his interview contributions] strung all the segments together and deleted all the "uhhhs" very professionally!

The focus in this month's podcast is on news from the NetBeans QE team, in light of the release of the upcoming NetBeans IDE 6.5, represented by Lukas Hasik. In addition, Tinu talks about the (great new) NetBeans forums and the NetBeans World Tour (starting October 1!), James informs us about the NetBeans Community Docs Program, and Jaroslav Tulach reveals, in the API design tip of the podcast, why "constructors rule". He also announces the winner of the 'Will Code for Food' competion. Then we introduce a new segment, focusing on an interesting e-mail we've received over the course of the past month (if your e-mail is mentioned you win a NetBeans t-shirt). Finally, of course, there's the plugin of the podcast and... the puzzler!

Excellent podcast, thank you.

I recently purchased the "Practical API Design: Confessions of a Java Framework Architect". I'm looking forward to reading it when it arrives.
