NetBeans 6.7 Released

Yesterday NetBeans 6.7 was finally released. There was no significant improvement since in Groovy area since my last post as we were in stabilization period. You can see the complete list of new features in New and Noteworthy document for 6.7.

Unfortunately there is one defect in the new Parsing API influencing integration of Groovy into Java (the opposite way is ok). This will be fixed in a patch that should be released in couple of weeks. Fix is already present in trunk build.

Hi Petr,

Great work.... thanks.. =)

The debug is working if you start from outside, right?

Why don't have a option to start debug directly in netbeans, like the run and test?

Yes, hopefully I'll spare some time for basic debugging right from the IDE. I'm snowed under with Java EE 6 support right now :/

Hi Peter,

How about better code autocompletion ? Is something new in trunk build ?

Cheers

Actually I wanted to blog about that later (with some screenshots) ;) There is imo one big improvement in this area in trunk - much better code completion for local variables, parameters and closure iterators. For example you defined variable (or method you are writing has a parameter) and try to complete the name couple of lines below - you didn't get any cc before, now you should get something ;)

Hey it's great.
I have just discovered 1 bug.
I have declared method in Test.groovy class.

method:

testingMethod(XMLObject page) {
page.

it offers bad methods ... it should offer me org.w3c.xmlc.XMLObject methods but instead it actualy gives methods of a same named class but placed in a different package.
Both classes are java classes.
