The NetBeans team has just delivered NetBeans 7, a new major IDE release. Congratulations to the folks in Prague (and elsewhere)!
One of the main new features is support for the draft Java SE 7 specification and in particular the Project Coin languages changes (diamond operator, multi-catch, ARM blocks, etc) including hints to refactor existing code to take advantage of them.
The tool still offers great out-of-the-box experience and now has improved Java EE 6 support over 6.9.1. NetBeans 7.0 is now the stable NetBeans release you want to be using with GlassFish 3.1 (see new features). It also supports recent versions of Oracle WebLogic Server.
