NetBeans 6.1 Milestone 1 available

Milestone 1 of NetBeans 6.1 is now available for download at:

http://bits.netbeans.org/netbeans/6.1/m1/2008-01-28_10-31-18/

This stabilized development build contains the following noteworthy features, just to mention some of them:
\* WebSphere 6.0 & 6.1 support is now part of the NetBeans
\* The plugin for Mercurial versioning system has been added to the standard NetBeans distribution.
\* Slided-in windows can be made transparent to see what's beneath them
\* Plugin Manager allows to run download&install plugins in background, task progress is notified in the status line
\* Accordion, Bubble help and Popup Menu JSF components are available in palette

The question everyone probably asks is: should I migrate to 6.1 M1? Well I would only suggest that if you like to stay on the bleeding edge and you want to help us by providing feedback and submitting bugs. For real work it's probably better to stick to 6.0, unless you really want to use some of the new features (e.g. Websphere support).

Comments:

The default set of update centers have a lot more plugins than for 6.0.
Some of these plugins are not yet compatile with 6.1. I found that installing "Experimental Java Hints" plugin, prevents Netbeans 6.1M1 from staring up.
