Netbeans 6 is Great!

I'm stilling using Netbeans 5.5, since Teamware VCS is not supported in Netbeans 6 yet. However, every time I find something not quite comfortable and want to send a feedback to the Netbeans team, I know I must start Netbeans 6 to see if it's already updated there. Recently, I have 2 such cases, and every time Netbeans 6 makes me so satisfied.

  1. Netbeans is very smart, when you type a ' or a ", it automatically add the 2nd same character and let you type between the two. Unfortunately, in Netbeans 5.5, this is also true when I write inside the comment. In Netbeans 6, this is fixed.
  2. We are quite busy adding GPL headers to Java SE src and test codes these days. GPL requires that this header to be at the very beginning of the code but Netbeans 5.5 adds the package import lines at the beginning. Now, Netbeans 6 adds import lines after the GPL header and before any other user document. This is cool.
