Where's Milestone 9?

Guest Author

You may wonder where's Milestone 9 - it should have already been out quite a few days ago. Well, it's on it's way, Milestone 9 is going to be the build we will use at Java One so it's being polished at the moment - it will appear soon :) Lots of new features are coming in M9 - support for beans binding (JSR 295), swing application framework (JSR 296), better JavaScript support including embedded JavaScript, RESTful web services, new plug-in manager, UML, Ruby and much more.

    cool. can't wait. M8 is great.
    any plans to make Matisse generate JRuby code for Swing ?
    that would be a VB killer.

    I've been installing new daily builds for several months now and love the direction that Netbeans is headed. Although I could spend days listing my favorite improvements/new features, I especially don't know how I was able to live without the new syntax highlighting and version control system support in the editor (being able to quickly see edits made to a version controlled source file by seeing the colored bars on the side of the editor is fantastic). The new diff editor is also great.
    Although this is pre-beta, I've had very few problems using it as my primary IDE.
    I'm excited for Milestone 9 and beyond. Keep up the good work!

    Looks like m9 is on the way at: http://bits.nbextras.org/download/6.0/m9/

    Netbeans 6 just rocks!

    The new editor, though flaky in the milestone builds, packs a powerful punch. Eagerly looking forward to M9! Go Netbeans!

    Netbeans 6 is looking really good guys, the support for desktop apps is really shinning thru ... I would love to see how some of the app framework stuff relates back to using things like the Netbeans RCP though.
    Great work! Even the installer seems to work nicer.

    For hibernate in NetBeans 5.5, see this document. Tomcat 6 supports Java EE 5 so it might be possible to make this also work with Tomcat.

    As for the app framework and NetBeans platform, we're still working it out.
