    Nice to see progress on UML. Do you anything about UML plans for NetBeans 6??
  • Roumen Monday, February 26, 2007
    Not really. I think they are now busy mainly with bugfixing and improving the UML modules for first release in April. Maybe someone from the team can share more info... I'll try to find out more for the next podcast.

    nice podcast, as usual:-)
    You should definitly get Tor Norbye as a guest to your show. It might be interesting to hear something about Java Posse as well as JRuby support in nb :)

    Could you please mention on the next show when the next NetBeans magazine will be out? Does it have a regular schedule or what's the deal with it?
    Great show once again. Looking forward to hearing what Tor has to say.

    Based upon the described features, this release really can't come soon enough. Eclipse will have a lot of catching up to do to compete with the level of ease-of-use and integration being offered here.
