NetBeans IDE / BlueJ Edition — it’s here


The NetBeans IDE / BlueJ Edition, which I wrote about in an earlier post, has now been officially released. You can download it from the NetBeans web site.

This environment gives you a great option for your second IDE, once BlueJ becomes too small for you and you’re ready for the serious stuff.

Once you’re in NetBeans, try out Matisse, the new NetBeans GUI builder. It’s nice. Believe me, worth a look.
