JBoss Tools 3.2 RC1 Released
The first release candidate of JBoss Tools 3.2 is
out now. This release features Automatic Runtime Detection, meaning
that users can now configure a set of directories that JBoss Tools
can scan either on new workspaces or at every startup. Maven
integration is now supported, enabling CDI automatically whenever
the pom.xml file references the CDI api jars. The team have worked
on improving the user experience for Deltacloud tools, and the
Teiid Instance wizard allows a separate input for host and port, in
addition to username and password. Please see the What’s
New for more information on the changes.

Oracle Drop Ruby on Rails Support From
Oracle have announced that they have decided to discontinue support for Ruby on Rails in the NetBeans
IDE, citing low usage trends for the Ruby on Rails support. Oracle
also wish to focus on the upcoming Java SE 7 and JDK 7 releases. In
their report, Network World quote an email from Ruby on Rails
founder David Heinemeier Hansson, in which he reveals he isn’t
surprised by this development: “I never came across anyone using
NetBeans for Rails. Everyone I talk to uses TextMate, VIM, or
Emacs. Full-fledged IDEs are not all that popular in the Rails
world.” The Ruby on Rails module will be removed from NetBeans IDE
7.0 as of January 27th.
