0.11 is out to support Android SDK 2.3

OK, it is uploaded now - you can update your SDK to latest and newest and then update your NBAndroid plugin. It will work together - all known platforms are recognized including Android 2.3 with or without Google APIs.

Use JIRA at kenai.com if you find problems. Note that unless this is a major issue it can take a while. I'll focus on support for standard layout if I have a chance to commit some time.

Enjoy it.

Gingerbread news and quick status updated

Google released new version 2.3 of Android code-named Gingerbread yesterday and as some people already pointed out it does not play well existing version of NBAndroid.

Please be patient for a few days. I will try to update it and release new version soon. There are two possibilities. The simpler one is that I can only do a refresh of released version 0.10 with SDK libraries from new SDK. If everything goes well there will be very limited amount of changes needed for such an update.

The other one is to do little bit more work and push beta of current development branch that aims to support default development setup used by Android SDK tool-chain. This is still rough and will force everyone to do some changes in their project to convert them into project that work with or without NetBeans.

Ideally we can do both. Please stay tuned.

Version 0.10 is out

A new update is published and your feedback is welcomed. There are a few new things and changes
  • A new plugin supporting displaying of data from logcat from Nyerel.
  • Another patch by akochnev that adds support for recent version of Android SDK (r3 and r4)
  • JDK 1.6 is now required as a JDK used to run NetBeans IDE. Modules will not install / disable themselves if you use older JDK.
  • You will need NetBeans 6.7.1 or newer. I dropped support for 6.5 and if time permits this can simplify a few things in these plugins and make development easier.
Huge thanks for both contributions and I apologize for long delay before these were published. Of course any feedback or contributions are welcomed.

Enjoy it!
