NetBeans 4.2 is Dead, Long Live NetBeans 5.0
By Roman Strobl on IX 03, 2005
There were many discussions recently about next version of NetBeans. The voting didn't show a clear winner (although 4.2 had a bit more votes). The final decision is to go with 5.0. There's a lot of good arguments for both versions. Let's hope this decision will not make too much confusion, we'll need to change the 4.2 number all over the netbeans.org website. More on this topic in Gregg's blog and in Tim's blog.
