NetBeans 6.9 Beta goes live!



The NetBeans team is announcing Beta trial for version NetBeans 6.9 IDE. NetBeans 6.9 newly introduces the JavaFX Composer, a visual layout tool for visually building JavaFX GUI applications and OSGi interoperability for NetBeans Platform applications so you can use OSGi bundles in a NetBeans RCP application.

On the C/C++ side, there are improvements to:
  • Hyperlink navigation
  • Unit test integration for C/C++ projects
  • Better sync up of remote/local files (Remote development)
  • Better sorting of Make targets in Navigator and improved Fortran support
  • Support for Doxygen and Solaris man pages
If you havent tried a recent version of NetBeans, you might find that improvements in gdb debugging, automatic profiling views for Microstate Accounting, Thread Map, Hot Spots and Memory Leaks and improved Remote development capabilities.

This is also the first NetBeans release since Sun's acquisition by Oracle, so my special kudos to the team for getting this out in a timely fashion; we all know how stressful these transitions can be! I'm already on it and I found it to be a seamless upgrade from 6.8. The download took only about a minute or so on my OpenSolaris desktop (download size is about 35MB) and the install was equally quick (installed image is about 140MB in size).

Download your trial version of NetBeans 6.9 Beta here.
