The OpenJFX team has announced updated JavaFX Script plugins for the NetBeans IDE. There are two plugins: one for NetBeans 5.5 and NetBeans 6.0. The plugin for 6.0 features a preview of JavaFXPad integration, a lightweight tool for building graphical elements using JavaFX Script.

Release 1.0.2 of jVi for NetBeans is now available and tested with NetBeans 5.5, 5.5.1 and 6.0. Online documentation is available; it is also recommended to read "jVi in NetBeans". For proper undo/redo granularity, there is a small optional patch to NetBeans. There are 200 normal mode commands including vim's visual block mode, tag stack and external process filters as with the "!" commands. See recent changes.
For NON-vi/vim users who wish to only use jVi's extensive Rectangular Edit functions, there is javahelpset on Block Mode with examples and instructions on how to temporarily enable jVi only for Rectangular Edit functions.
