New on is an interview with Roman Strobl, NetBeans evangelist, conducted by my writer colleague, Ed Ort, at Sun Tech Days in Milan in late September. In the interview, Roman highlighted many of the new or enhanced capabilities in NetBeans 6.0 IDE, including the following—

  • Support for the Swing Application Framework, which makes for much easier and faster development of Java GUI apps on the desktop
  • Support for Ruby, JRuby, and JavaScript
  • Integrated Profiler
  • A more intelligent editor
  • A new designer for mobile and game development
  • One installation only—no more separate downloads of components

Well done, Ed and Roman.
