OK, so, are we good? The project space was back up just about 24 hours after the upgrade began, with a note that the upgrade work was continuing. By last evening (US EDT), the notice on the project pages said "The upgrade of java.net's project area is complete. Happy java.netting!"
Are we out of the woods? Are we done? You tell us. Try out your projects and all their various features (mailing lists, wikis, source control, etc.) and if you see anything that doesn't look right, let us know. Contact information is available on the upgrade page .

the NetBeans 5.5 UML Modeling module is now available for download from the NetBeans Update Center. The module provides UML modeling features to the NetBeans IDE. It allows analysts and designers to design applications using a standard modeling language. Developers are then able to generate source code from the UML model and update the model from changes made in their source code. A Flash demo shows NetBeans' UML Modeling in action .
Most developers think of the Java compiler, javac, as an unobtrusive command-line tool to invoke when you want to turn Java source code into class files.
