(EN) Plugin Manager's Settings tab redesigned
By jara on VI 08, 2007
In the NetBeans Plugin Manager there is redesigned Settings tab. You can see this change in new daily builds of NetBeans IDE. I like the terminology that is used there for distinguishing between Plugins and NetBeans Modules (NBM). The term Plugin is used now for what I called a category in my last blog entries. The second one corresponds to a single .nbm file. Unfortunately this wording is probably not final yet.
There is one feature that is disabled by now - Install into shared directories. It used to be called Global option in the Update Center Wizard contained in former releases. This feature is not implemented yet so that the checkbox stays gray now.
The look of all tabs is consistent now in Plugin Manager. Besides changes in Settings tab there are some small improvements especially in description panels which have now different background for plugin/.nbm name and the Install tab contains buttons Activate/Deactivate by this name on the right.
The Settings tab look.
