OpenOffice NetBeans Integration/Releases/Release 1.2
The 1.2 release date is not finally planned. For this release we will focus on improvements for the existing project types and the overall workflow.
|NetBeans 6 support (building the plugin as well using it with NetBeans 6)||planned||-|
| Specialized UNO object file types
Similar to specialized project types we will provide specialized file types for Calc Add-ins and Add-On objects.
|Extended and improved help files for the plugin||planned||-|
|Support for option pages. That means new xcs for new options, adapted xcu for the option page, code skeleton for event handler, adapted manifest, dialog editor support.||planned||-|
|Integration of extensible help for extensions (includes packaging of help files in the oxt, appropriate manifest entry, registration of xhp as xml file types)||planned||-|
|Upload action to extension repository (at least a menu entry to start a web browser with the extensions.services.openoffice.org repository. Later on when a web series would be available a smother integration is possible)||planned||-|
|Extended and improved automated tests for the plugin (it's more an implementation feature, plugin developer and QA feature)||planned||-|
Besides these planned features the whole wiki page should be reworked and updated. For example exchange screenshots with new ones, extend documentation etc.
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.
