NetBeans 5.0 Beta is available

Posted by arungupta on September 29, 2005 at 1:17 PM PDT

beta is now available and can be downloaded here.
I've been using NetBeans
for almost a year now and in the process of installing beta version.
Here are the key advertised features:

  • Improved GUI builder (Matisse). Check out this cool demo
    of GUI building capabilities.
  • JBoss 4 and WebLogic 9 are now supported in addition to Sun Java System
    Application Server 8.1
  • Improved code completion support (automatic generation of getter/setter is
    my favorite) and refactoring
  • Editor enhancements (automatic indentation and code folding in XML editor
    are my main items)
  • Debugging: Ant debugger has been included that steps through the target

The installation went without any hiccups so I hope to report on my NetBeans
5.0 experience in the days to come.
