NetBeans 4.1 branch created
A few hours ago a new branch, "release41", was created off the NetBeans CVS trunk. The 4.1 final release is coming. We are now in the so called high resistance mode when developers switched the mindset. Do no harm, no new last minute features, strict review-before-commit policy.
Things have been hectic at NetBeans lately. We added a very big and completely new feature set: J2EE and Web services support. The work on JFluid based profiler is finalizing nicely too. Developers even suggested to bump the major version number to 5.0 but our marketing were too conservative :-) We merely released NetBeans 4.0 in December
A few more bug fixes and go into 4.2. But now some sleep first...
Please try out 4.1 builds and let us know what you want to see in 4.2 which should go out late August or September. There is already something in the making but it would be for another blog.
