Current issues concerning NetBeans 6

  • Plugin cannot be built with NetBeans 6

Not tried yet, but seems to be resolved. See NetBeans issue 118101.

  • Error message while opening an IDL file

The IDL syntax highlighting uses a deprecated API in NetBeans, since there was no alternative in NB5. New API concepts for syntax highlighting have to be evaluated - and used.

  • Not recognized .class files generated from compiled IDL sources

This will not be fixed in NetBeans. See NetBeans issue 118100. We need to do a workaround for this.

Due to the lack of resources there is no estimation possible when these issues will be fixed.
