NetBeans IDE 5.5.1 BlueJ Edition
By: Admin, 30 May 2007
NetBeans.org and BlueJ.org are proud to announce the availability of NetBeans IDE 5.5.1 BlueJ Edition.
This special edition of NetBeans IDE is a collaboration between the NetBeans community and the University of Kent, England. The NetBeans IDE BlueJ Edition is targeted at teachers and students familiar with the popular BlueJ tool (www.bluej.org). The NetBeans BlueJ Edition helps you "make the jump" from BlueJ to a full-featured IDE, either when your projects have grown too big to fit comfortably into BlueJ, or when you want to use features such as code completion and drag-and-drop GUI building, which BlueJ doesn't directly support.
NetBeans IDE 5.5.1 BlueJ Edition is available in English and has been localized into simplified Chinese, Japanese, and Brazilian Portuguese. The 5.5.1 version includes fixes of several bugs that were in the 5.0 version.
