What????? NetBeans released the 6.0? That's amazing. I am still using the 0.0.0.0.1 version:icon_lol: I am going to download it with my PSTN 28kbps connection. By the time it gets downloaded, the 7.0 will be released :icon_lol:
It LOOKS similar in screenshots, but has for example built-in support for building Spring applications (including crosslinking between the configuration files and sourcecode, code generators, etc.), Ruby, I think Groovy (not that I use that), vastly improved EJB3 support, etc.
I don't at the moment need that so I haven't upgraded. When I do have the need, the upgrade will be there :)
