How to import/export your Netbeans settings to a new version

I’m a big fan of the Netbeans IDE, because I love the support it provides for Ruby on Rails.

It means that I upgrade my IDE to the latest release (Milestones, Betas etc) ¬†as soon as it comes out, but it also means that with every upgrade, I have to physically go and set every … single … option … again.

Sounds painful doesn’t it?
It is.

Luckily , I found a blog post that describes how to solve this problem and import your netbeans settings from version to version.

This is something that needs to be fixed in Netbeans … that and including a word wrap option … and cakephp support … oops … getting carried away there :D
