JavaBlogs.com.br - or Jablo, as some people call it - is a valuable resource to Java developers that can read Portuguese. Although their names are similar, it has little to do with javablogs.com, a service mantained by Atlassian that aggregates several other blogs.
Module development for NetBeans is something I've always been interested in, but never had the time to do. This time, however, I was able to; the ThinNB project at java.net adds Thinlet support for the NetBeans IDE.
It's been over a month since we added generic script support to genesis, but it was such an interesting experience I've actually considered writing this entry part of my TODO list. I've finally managed to do it, so let's go to the main point before you all fall asleep.
