NetBeans 7.1 Release Candidate (RC) 1 is here

NetBeans 7.1 RC 1 is here. Grab it from the usual place!

As previously discussed, NetBeans 7.1 has full JavaFX 2.0 support but also a lot in store for Java EE and Web developers (CDI in particular is very neat).


One of my personal favorite feature is that Deploy on Save is now set by default on Maven projects. Maybe one important part that didn't get proper coverage so far is CSS 3 support, an important feature which can be used from both Java EE and PHP but also from JavaFX.

Java Downloads of NetBeans 7.1 start at 69 MB and a 166 MB download will get you everything you need to start coding right away with Java EE - a great tool and a fully integrated runtime (GlassFish 3.1.1).

You really need to be not using Maven, not be interested in recent standards (Java EE 6, Java SE 7, Java FX 2.0, ...) and like to hand-craft assemble your IDE to afford ignoring NetBeans nowadays.


Will netbeans 7.1 support JBoss AS 7?

RC1 is already outdated. RC2 was release end of November:

Yes, indeed RC2 is out (and should soon be obsoleted by the Final release).

@Humberto, I can see a "JBoss" choice when adding a new server to NetBeans but I'm not sure about the supported versions and whether the new (and quite different) AS 7 is supported.
