NetBeans 6.1 Beta is out!

NetBeans 6.1 is out, along with a contest. There's a lot to like about it, but my personal favorite is the MySQL support. It couldn't have come at a better time: just a couple of days ago I started a big-ish project using MySQL, and the new NB features have really helped. And if you haven't tried the Visual Web Designer yet, take it out for a spin.

Blog Contest! Yeah! What's the better marketing method besides bribing the bloggers?

I think the MySQL support indeed is a helpful thing to those, well, using NB along with MySQL, but it makes me wonder nevertheless what is next? Specialized toolings for Oracle, PostgreSQL, DB2, whatever? I'd rather have preferred a good, strong all-purpose JDBC database tooling, including (finally) the ability to save SQL pages to files. But at least it's a good starting point...

One giant step towards NetBeans 7
:)
I think this is a great feature.
I hope that since Sun owns MySQL , a latest driver for mySql would be downloaded as soon as i add a mySQL as a Database.

Most of NetBeans' database support is quite generic and supports a wide variety of databases. NetBeans is an open source project and we'd love to have Oracle and IBM and whoever else is interested contribute specialized support for their favorite database.

That is indeed the great enchancement!

I've love to see NetBeans support Seasar2 frame work as well. At the moment that is the only advantage for me to use Elipse.
