Hi Guys!

We've implemented partial support for lldb-mi in NetBeans!
Follow the instruction below to make NetBeans work with lldb-mi:

1. build lldb-mi (http://lldb.llvm.org/build.html)
2. build debugserver (Mac users can reuse existing one supplied with XCode)
3. download and install the latest distribution of NetBeans 
(http://bits.netbeans.org/download/trunk/nightly/latest/) including 
C/C++ pack
4. before starting NetBeans init the LLDB_DEBUGSERVER_PATH environment 
variable with a path to debugserver and export it
5. to make NetBeans use the lldb-mi instruction set add the additional 
-J-Dcnd.debugger.lldb=true parameter into the NetBeans run command
6. after having started NetBeans open Tools->Options->C/C++ 
(NetBeans->Preferences->C/C++ for Mac users) and specify a path to 
lldb-mi in a toolchain you're going to use
