I'm a chocolatey package maintainer... and also a big fan of Netbeans. I recently implemented a dedicated Netbeans 11 package.
Now, the Chocolatey Moderators are faciing a dilemna about the package version scheme.
I'm about sure your feedback could help a lot.
From what I could see I looks more convenient to manage separated packages to make softwares updates more confortable.
I mean : if I initially installed Netbeans 10, I want to stick on 10, and when I apply updates, stick on Netbeans 10, and not upgrade to 11. From my point of view it makes the final user update process easier and safer. For example to better manage plugin compatibilities.
Could yo please tell us your opinion about that on the dedicated ticket :
So we can make the Netbeans 11 available on chocolatey central repo ?

Thank you in advance for your help.
