visual designer, again

So, will the visual Icefaces designer and NB ever come together again after NB 6.5? And, can somebody shed light on why such a wonderful feature suddenly dropped out of sight? It doesn't make sense!

Has a Visual Designer in Eclipse..

The plugin works a bit better in Eclipse since a visual designer is supported there.

A little bit poor for the Woodstock successor

"Netbeans VWP (Visual Web Project) visual designer is not supported." This bug persists for months. I think this is quite poor for the designated successor for the Woodstock components.
