Today I saw that a new version 1.7 of the “Cool Editor Actions” plugin has been uploaded by anchialos to the plugin portal . It introduces switching of project groups and toolbar configurations right from the toolbar, which is very nice.
BTW: A similar much older plugin named “Project Group Toolbar” from Aljoscha Rittner already exists, but unfortunately it does not work in a stable way anymore – regarding to multiple comments at the plugin portal .
Retro alarm! You can still download all the NetBeans IDE versions since 3.5.1. I installed them all in a VM, ran them and captured some images for you. BTW NetBeans 3.5.1 runs on JDK7 – or at least it started.
The previous released can be downloaded at http://www.netbeans.info/downloads/dev.php.
There are 2 open seats for the NetBeans platform training in April 2014 in Leipzig/Germany. As you already know – Toni Epple and Geertjan Wielenga will the trainers . Two of the best NetBeans Platform trainers currently available in one package.

Another short note for today: I recently updated the “Additional Java Hints” plugin. There are some new hints/small quickfixes, which may be useful (or not) for Java developers.
- [New Hint]: Support transformation to BigDecimal constants
- [New Hint]: Split a string at caret
- [New Hint]: Convert to assertTrue/assertFalse
- [New Hint]: Remove “public abstract” modifiers from method declarations within interfaces
The plugin is verified for NB 7.3 and NB 7.4 and already available from the plugin dialog within your NetBeans IDE. Or you can download it from http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/47589/additional-hints
As always please file issues and enhancements at https://github.com/markiewb/nb-additional-hints/issues . Pull request are also appreciated.
Good news for all the NetBeans IDE java developers who have to comply to formatter rules of their Eclipse JDT coworkers. I released a new version of the Eclipse Code Formatter plugin.
The major change was the integration of the formatter engine from Eclipse Kepler 4.3. The plugin now also allows you to choose which formatter profile you want to use.
The plugin is available from the PPUC at http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/50877/eclipse-code-formatter-for-java or from your IDE (Tools|Plugin)
Supports NetBeans 7.3+ and JDK6+
