it did update, however right at the beginning of the next release
cycle (6.0) which is a month or two back. Nb has the policy of
supporting 2 stable version of the JDK. it gives people time to
migrate and for example macosx didn't have a 1.5 jdk for some time.
AFAIK idea ships with a jre, so they don't have to consider this much.
nb 5.0 is out for some time already. (that's what I base the netbeans
support on) and 5.5 will be out  soon. but unfortunately I'm not sure
when 6.0 is to due to be released.

a minority indeed.

I think I can forbid installing the netbeans modules when running on
1.4. My concern was how the 1.4-compiled netbeans binaries will play
with the 1.5-compiled binaries of mevenide. (or if I compile mevenide
with 1.4, how wil it play with 1.5-compiled maven embedder.) Anyone
has experience with such a setup?
