NetBeans 5.5.1 is out
By lukas on May 24, 2007
5.5.1 is out- NetBeans, Mobility Pack, Mobility Pack for CDC, etc.
There are some new features in the Mobility Pack area. There is only a few new things because the focus is on the 6.0 release.
- Support for NSICOM CrEme VM - you can develop for Pocket PC now.
- new version of proguard 3.7
- new Sun Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5.1
This release cost me a lot of energy, lot of lost time. Mostly because of the never ending testing cycle. I (as Quality Engineer of the Mobility Pack) hate the late time changes, changes of plans and set of features. However it gives more flexibility and opportunity to react on what the users want quickly it is bad for QE. We had to restart testing again and again because of the WTK. Nobody knew if they would release on time. We had to be prepared for both cases. I'll remember this release as "to have the WTK, or to not have WTK".
