Substance module will be supported in NetBeans 6.0
Iâ€™m very happy to report that NetBeans developers have unrolled the changes that broke the Substance NetBeans module (reported in early May on NetBeans bug tracker). And so, if youâ€™re using the daily builds of NetBeans 6.0 (after July 26th), you can install the latest development drop of Substance 4.0 module (code-named Key Largo).
Many thanks to NetBeans team and Standa Aubrecht in particular for listening to the community and making these changes that allow third-party look-and-feels to provide modules for both NetBeans IDE itself and NetBeans RCP programs. Standa was courteous enough to provide a patch that removes usage of deprecated APIs and unnecessary functionality. The only minor defect that will be fixed in the consistent appearance for tab scroll buttons.
