About Nimbus

This morning I did a quick try to install Nimbus to NetBeans 5.5,
Java 6. The overall impression is very good, but there are lot of
bugs to fix. Do you already want some feedback or do you prefer to
wait for a more stable release? Is this mailing list ok for talking
about Nimbus BTW?

Fabrizio,

This is a very early stage implementation. Some components are not
even skinned and we haven't decided what to do with some others (for
instance, Jasper and I were discussing about the focus last night.)
While we definitely want feedback, I am not sure that most bug
reports would be relevant at this point. Nimbus is definitely a pre-
pre-pre-pre-pre-pre alpha :)

For a "pre-pre-pre-pre-pre-pre alpha" it looks better than most alphas. I did note that it broke the JTree sample in SwingSet2, but you probably know that. I am curious though, how long it took to get to this point? Weeks? Months? Years? Thanks.

A few weeks by one person, Jasper Potts. Note that it's based upon
the visual mockups done for Solaris Nimbus GTK skin a while ago. I
don't know how much time and effort was spent on these mockups, which
were done by a company outside of Sun. Anyway, building Nimbus on top
of Synth makes things a lot easier and faster.

There is an issue tracker for nimbus so you might check whether your issues are already reported there or not (most likely, so far it has only 3 issues). I would think that all the issues should be reported already so they can be checked and not forgotten about later.

> ok for talking about Nimbus BTW?
There are few nimbus specific mailing lists at https://nimbus.dev.java.net/servlets/ProjectMailingListList
but since nimbus is part of swinglabs I don't see a reason why not to talk about it here.
