After eight months of frantic development since VisualVM Preview 1 was released I'm happy to announce the general availability of JDK 6 Update 7 Java VisualVM and VisualVM 1.0 (java.net).
Well, mainly that if you download and install JDK 6 Update 7 on your machine running VisualVM will be as simple as calling <jdk-home>/bin/jvisualvm.
VisualVM comes with a set of plugins available for download from the VisualVM Plugin Center. In order to enhance VisualVM's core functionality go to "Tools | Plugins" and give a try to any of the available plugins or even better extend the tool by writing your own plugins using the VisualVM APIs for plugin developers.
Use feedback at visualvm.dev.java.net mailing list to send us your feedback.
