RE: netbeans 7.1 ?

To make this plugin available in the Plugin Portal Update Center, the plugin owner has to sign it ( and ask for a plugin validation.

TheesW, could you do that ? It would be cool ;)

netbeans 7.1 ?

Why does this plugin not automatically appear in the available plugins for 7.1 ?
I downloaded it and installed it manually and it works fine...
