Description aschwarz1309 2014-10-21 20:17:48 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.0.1 (Build 201408251540)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_40
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 24.0-b56

This is specific to C/C++ but may be extendable to other environments.

I'd be surprised if these weren't requested before:
1: Ability to create a 'new' project in a directory with source code. Currently non-empty directories that don't have required NB files (such as a Makefile) can not be used as the source and destination of a new project. It would be convenient to have the ability to specify a directory with source code and have NB create to required NB files from the existing files.

2: Preservation of document tabs during an update. Document tabs are lost when an update occurs. An inconvenience.

3: Provide project type data in project properties (such as whether this is for an application, static library, dynamic library, etc.). Some of this information can be 'inferred' by looking at, for example, linker options, but it would be convenient to just state that the project is .. explicitely.

4: Ability to change project properties such as dynamic/static library creation, application, etc.

5: Make cut, paste, paging, home, end, etc. consistent in all the output windows (output, terminal, etc.). For example, both CTL-C, ad CTL-SHIFT_C are used for cut and page is available for the output window but not the terminal window.

No rush. The next two days should be fine ;)
