A little bit of eye candy in development builds

The work on NetBeans 6.0 is mostly over so we've started working on features that will be available in version 6.1. Among other things we decided to make the windows system less boring by adding some visual eye candy. One example is balloon-like tooltip which pops up when new updates are available:



Another example are transparent sliding windows. Sometimes you may need a quick glance at your source files when examining the content of output window. So instead of sliding the output window out you may now make it transparent. You can use either scroll wheel with Alt+Shift modifiers or Ctrl+NumPad_0 shortcut:



Stay tuned, more visual effects are coming soon!

Sounds great!

I hope users will also have the option of turning off this eye candy, especially on lower powered machines.
