I always wanted to know how to upgrade Netbeans in place. Currently, whenever a new version is released, we have to download and install a separate version even if we already have Netbeans installed.
As explained in the FAQ:
Q: Is it possible to upgrade from (for example) NetBeans IDE 6.7.1 to 6.8, or from a beta to a milestone to a final release, using the update center?
A: No, this is not possible. For a new release, you must download a new installer from the download page. http://netbeans.org/downloads/
If someone knows how to upgrade Netbeans +in place, please let me know, thanks.
