A Mid-Summer NetBeans Update

For a moment it seemed as though history was about to repeat itself, wasn't it?

With this fifth post, I'm happy to report that it ain't so!

To mark getting back on track, here are five recent highlights--since the "pause"--to share:

  1. The NetBeans team started a gorgeous and sunny week in Prague this Monday by announcing NetBeans 7.4 Beta. Judging from responses on the NetBeans Twitter feed, there's plenty in this beta build that has users excited. A complete rundown can be found here.

  2. My NetBeans podcast cohost Geertjan and I recorded a [new] themed episode (#65) recently. We focused on plugins--Jelastic and JRebel, specifically. On most of our podcast recordings we cover a variety of topics, so it was a nice change to produce a one-topic podcast. We plan to do more of these in the future.

  3. The JavaOne 2013 notices went out in late June, and my two submitted BOF panel sessions (So You Want to Be a Published Technical Author? and Java Trends in Africa) were accepted! It'll be my first go at moderating/running a session solo at a conference. It's going to be an exciting experience.
    • (As always, a full line-up of NetBeans sessions and activities at the conference this year will be posted soon to NetBeans.org.)

  4. Content-wise, I have two new community interviews lined up for the blog, and a few others on the way.

  5. Thank you, World War Z, for my new interest in Zombie fiction. #summerguiltypleasurereading.
