Line wrapping is finally available in Netbeans 7.0

Well, if you ask me why I left Netbeans and started using phpStorm; I will say first: Speed, second: Line wrapping along with few other reasons. I’ve used Netbeans for quite sometime but I was very irritated as it did not have good line wrapping support. Some users may wonder why I am saying ‘good’ as it did not have any line wrapping at all.

The fact is that, line wrapping was implemented in earlier versions too but was not enabled by default as it was not stable.  It can be enabled by editing a configuration file but it was causing lots of troubles while coding. However, as the latest version, v7.0, is released on 18th April 2011, line wrapping is now available without any such hacking and so far it is good to me.

How to enable Line Wrapping?

Go to Netbeans  -> Preferences (or press CMD + ,) -> Editor -> Formatting

You will notice a drop down labeled as ‘Line Wrap’. Choose ‘After Words’ or ‘Anywhere’ as per your wish and then hit OK.

That’s it. Simply open a file (opened files need re-opening) and you will not see horizontal scroll-bars :).

cPanel introduced DNS Zone editor for end user

Finally they did it. DNS zone editing was a long waited feature for cPanel. A big portion of their customers were looking for such feature for a quite long time.

Recently I need it so badly that I started learning Perl. However, I won’t need to make it anymore.

It currently allows creating/deleting A and CNAME records through its Simple DNS Zone Editor and A, CNAME, TXT records through its Advanced DNS Zone Editor. Though it does not support other record types however, no doubt, these are the most important.

Finally, I am so happy and thanking cPanel team personally for introducing this feature.
