NetBeans 4.1 Release Candidate 1 is Out!

Guest Author

You can download NetBeans 4.1 RC1 here.

Final release will differ only slightly from Release Candidate 1. I recommend to upgrade to everybody who is using NetBeans 4.1 EA, EA2, beta, q-build or daily build, RC1 is definitely more stable. For users who prefer final releases: you probably want to wait till 4.1 final which will come in May. On the other hand if you have some issues with 4.0, you could try 4.1 RC1 if they were solved, there was a huge amount of bugfixes - see table below.

    Excellent! Congrats!

    Have you guys tried NB4.1 with the latest mustang build? The one that has the fix for theGray rect bug?
    You'll be impressed!

    Hi, I've just tried it on my home WinXP and I am really impressed! It behaves now like native app! Very good. Also the antialiasing was improved... now I can use NetBeans with AA on my LCD. This is really the right direction (IMO there is still a small space for improvement with font rendering compared to E...... you know who ;-)
