NetBeans Team is So Responsive to Bugs!

Posted by edburns on January 24, 2006 at 9:25 AM PST

This blog just collects some bugs I've filed on NetBeans and the
fixes and workarounds they have. Also, I want to take this opportunity
to say that the netbeans team is incredibly responsive to bug reports,
especially finding and marking duplicates. Us users really appreciate
it. Personally, as a member of Sun's JSF team, you are an inspiration
for me to be more responsive to my bugs!

  • The focus lost bug

    This one appears to be Mac only and apparently the result of a bug in
    the Mac JDK, which has been filed. Tim Bray reported the following
    workaround:

    There is a well-known workaround: using the menu, select
    Edit/Find. Dismiss the dialogue and you have focus back.

  • Expand the projects node to the document that currently has the focus.

    I love this one. On the Mac, with emacs mode enabled, the shortcut
    is Shift-Meta-1. Likewise for the files and and favorites tab it's
    Shift-Meta-2 and Shift-Meta-3 respectively.

  • Support for package-info.java

    There is now a wizard for creating package-info.java. Nice.

There are many more but that's all I have time for now.
