About the version number
The iReport version is normally in sync with the shipped JasperReports version. In order to avoid confusion with the current version of iReport (that we still consider the preferred one for production environments) we decide to use a different version number approach: nb-x.y.z.
Until iReport for NetBeans will not completely replace the "old" version of iReport, we will increment this version number. Then (summer 2008) we will bring iR to EOL, and iR for NB will inherits the privilege to be released with the same JR version number.

Why 0.9.0?
iReport for NB is quite stable thanks to the great NB platform, but it does not provide yet a set of features offered instead by the current version of iR. To discover more about what are the implemented features and what is still working in progress, please visit this page:
