Improved migration

The traffic in our JIRA increased in last weeks and there are some new bugfixes. At the moment these are available from continuous build and I'm going to upload NBMs to kenai.com soon.
  • Upgrade path is again a little bit smoother. If you used older version of nbandroid plugin (0.11) and updated it to 1.x the IDE will tell you that two modules must be disabled: org.netbeans.modules.android.platform and org.netbeans.modules.android.ant. You will need to confirm the disabling. This fixes incompatibility between those old modules that are removed from new version and caused problems on startup or when opening Java platform manager. Related bug report is here.
  • More importantly when an old nbandroid project is opened the new module tries to update it to new layout and toolset. Link to JIRA bug is NBANDROID-99 if you want to add comments.
  • Build is improved now: library projects are built using correct target name (ant compile) and in addition 'clean and build' action works too.
  • You can see documentation for SDK classes when editing your sources in Java editor.
Important note: previous post about development builds had a link pointing to last successful build when you really want to get last stable build (one that passes all tests). The entry is fixed now to point to http://deadlock.netbeans.org/hudson/job/nbandroid/lastStableBuild/artifact/build/updates/updates.xml. Please make sure that you update your configuration if you are using it.

And again there is more in the queue for next releases. Feedback is always welcomed.
