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
org.openide.filesystems.FileSystem; made by: sdedic; issues: #247200
The FileSystem.Status was entirely removed, as it references class java.awt.Image, which is not available in compact jdk profiles and may trigger GUI system initialization. See javadocs of StatusDecorator for details.
org.openide.filesystems.FileSystem; made by: sdedic; issues: #243561
The default implementation of FileSystem.Status annotated file's icon using ImageUtilities which uses AWT graphics etc. Such dependency is not desirable in a standalone FileSystem API library.
The builtin implementation now does not work with the icon at all and returns null. A proper
implementation for FileSystem.Status is looked up in default Lookup and is implemented
properly (with Icon annotations) in
