SDPY – NetBeans on a diet

Three years ago, I wrote a couple of blog entries ([1], [2]) about the impact of removing features from NetBeans (which was only available as a single bundle at the time) to bring it closer to java editors in memory consumption.

Nowadays, NetBeans comes in a variety of bundles, including some very lightweight ones such at the 26MB Java bundle, the 22 Ruby bundle, or even the 14MB C/C++ bundle. With JavaScript coming in 6.1 we might see even more bundles (although a JavaScript-only bundle wouldn’t make a much sense IMO).
