Behind the scenes a couple of people were already talking about RefactorIt going open source, after already providing it for free. This enables the community to port RefactorIt to NetBeans 6 (this was not available up to now). Additionally all the nice metric and audit algorithm and functions can now be integrated in your favourite IDE. So any volunteers out there?
For a start head over to http://sourceforge.net/projects/refactorit/ and get the source! It seems this is not a very NetBeans friendly source layout - but this should prove no difficulty for real NetBeans developers. So, whish you happy hacking and expect new features based on the RefactorIt code to be integrated in SQE.
