The supplied dates indicate when the API change was made, on the CVS trunk. From this you can generally tell whether the change should be present in a given build or not; for trunk builds, simply whether it was made before or after the change; for builds on a stabilization branch, whether the branch was made before or after the given date. In some cases corresponding API changes have been made both in the trunk and in an in-progress stabilization branch, if they were needed for a bug fix; this ought to be marked in this list.
release41branch was made on Apr 03 '05 for use in the NetBeans 4.1 release. Specification versions: 6.0 begins after this point.
release40branch was made on Nov 01 '04 for use in the NetBeans 4.0 release. Specification versions: 5.0 begins after this point.
Fuller descriptions of all changes can be found below (follow links).
Not all deprecations are listed here, assuming that the deprecated APIs continue to essentially work. For a full deprecation list, please consult the Javadoc.
These API specification versions may be used to indicate that a module requires a certain API feature in order to function. For example, if you see here a feature you need which is labelled 1.20, your manifest should contain in its main attributes the line:
OpenIDE-Module-Module-Dependencies: $codebase > 1.20

OpenIDE Text API dependencies are removed, affecting
API class, whose interface changed incompatibly. The class now returns
java.swing.text.Position instead of
for the start and end positions.
For binary compatibility, an additional module
java.source.compat8 was created,
which provides compatible method that still returns
Runtime compatibility remains, compile time compatibility is
mostly preserved too. It is however recommended to upgrade
dependencies of client modules. Try running
ant fix-dependencies in your Ant module.
