NetBeans 6.0 has been released!

Guest Author

I am in Frankfurt at NetBeans day now (thanks to all attendees for coming, I think the atmosphere is pretty good). I wanted to show the audience how to get the free NetBeans CD but the link on the website changed to "NetBeans DVD". I was really surprise and I didn't realize we just released NetBeans 6 until someone in the audience told me he just downloaded NetBeans 6.0 during the talk :) So go get it, too.

    Hey Roumen,

    I try this version. All core features are allright, it's very good work!

    I love ALT+Insert refactoring :)

    I must ask you:

    When will be any Seam plugin for NetBeans?

    When will be any TestNG plugin?

    Congrats on releasing NetBeans IDE 6.0. I absolutely love that 20 MB NetBeans IDE (Java SE) download. It has made updating from milestones, to release candidates to final release a real snap.

    Hi Roumen,

    In one of your NetBeans IDE swing layout application demo, you mentioned about how to make only one jar by including the libs as below;

    <target name="-post-jar">

    <jar update="true" destfile="${dist.jar}">

    <zipfileset src="${libs.swing-layout.classpath}"/>



    This was running very well for NB 5.5 but now for NB 6.0, I could not use it. Please help me!

    I just want to add also that I searched all nbusers community questions for big jar and fat jar but answers did not solve the problem.

    Congrats to the whole NetBeans dev team on the 6.0 release, what a huge job that was! I would really like to hear what the plans are (or at least ideas) for the 6.1 and 7.0 releases. All I've heard so far is "performance improvements, bug fixes, and some new features". I'm wondering if the plans to split the Visual Web designer into something more reusable for regular HTML, JSP files, Facelets and other web frameworks will begin? http://wiki.netbeans.org/wiki/view/DesignerModules

    At the moment the visual designer is only useful for JSF, and only if you don't mind using the Creator/Visual Web framework on top of JSF instead of Seam + Facelets. The 6.0 release also has huge memory leaks in the Visual Designer that make me have to restart the IDE every 1-2 hours. Luckily the leaks have recently been found and fixed (issue #123003)
