Check it out. My friend Tab, aka, NetBeans Marketing Gal, sent me the following::
On Tuesday at EuroPython 2008, Ted Leung (Dynamic Languages & Tools
Architect, Sun Microsystems) and Frank Wierzbicki (Jython Project Lead,
Sun Microsystems) announced that the NetBeans IDE will be supporting
Python and Jython in future releases. At the core of bringing
Python/Jython support to the NetBeans IDE, is the formation of the
NBPython Project, led by community member Allan Davis.
For more information, visit the NBPython Project page and request membership to the project. For developers wishing to
contribute, sign up for the development mailing list .
In addition, the Sun Developer Network (SDN) is also launching the
Python Developer Center and is planning to feature Python/Jython
technologies in future Sun Tech Days events, a 15-city world tour
designed to educate developers in local markets on various
technologies. Python runtime support is already available in
OpenSolaris 2008.05, via the pkg.opensolaris.org repository, as well as
with Cool Stack on Solaris 10-based systems.
Pretty cool stuff.
