NetBeans ships version 6 beta 2
By octav on Oct 22, 2007
NetBeans ships beta 2 of the upcoming 6.0 release, today (10/22/07). New NetBeans users may want to start on the docs page, while current users could just download the bits to get the latest bug fixes. If you are new to Java start here, you'll see a variety of online courses - all using NetBeans. Also, I highly recommend subscribing to the mailing lists (NetBeans has developers around the world: St Petersburg - Russia, Prague - Czech Republic, and the US, you'll likely be able to get help around the clock).
