Description tomzi 2014-03-27 09:58:35 UTC
Please let have me - be able to click on a link from within the Plugins Pop up, which refers me to the http://plugins.netbeans.org, eg on the Available Plugins page next to the 'Check for Newest' Button - have a link for each Plugin its plugin page on the Netbeans homepage, eg right after the 'Homepage' link in the Description. The usecase for both is, that I'd like to see: - Whats new in this version - Comments to see what other user say, or make comments myself without having to go to google, type 'Netbeans', find the 'Plugins' page, find the plugin itself... Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.0 (Build 201403101706) Operating System = Linux version 3.5.0-47-generic running on amd64 Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_51 Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 24.51-b03

Another use case: - When I found a bug or want to do an enhancement request I would goto Tools/Plugins/Installed and find the target plugin and there I'd expect some link to (at least) the 'plugin.netbeans.org/...' plugin page, even better an additional link to the homepage of the plugin or EVEN better a link to the issue tracker of the plugin
