NetBeans IDE 6.8 Now Available for Download!

By: tinu, 10 Dec 2009

The NetBeans team is proud to announce the availability of NetBeans IDE 6.8!

NetBeans IDE 6.8 offers best-in-class support for the entire Java EE 6 specification and the GlassFish Enterprise Server v3 platform. Simplify Java application development with Java EE 6 language features: less XML configuration and more POJO-like development; easily target and deploy to GlassFish v3.

NetBeans IDE continues to be the tool of choice for top development languages; this release includes new features and improved support for PHP 5.3 and the Symfony framework, the latest JavaFX SDK 1.2.1, C/C++, Ruby, Maven and more. Integration with Project Kenai, a collaborative environment for hosting open-source projects, now offers full support for JIRA, as well as improved issue tracker integration. And as always, the NetBeans Platform provides a rock-solid application framework that can save years of development time.

Supporting Java EE 6 improvements first, NetBeans IDE 6.8 boosts developer productivity and lets developers take advantage of today's latest language and platform features.

More information:

NetBeans IDE 6.8 is available in English, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese and Simplified Chinese. There are several community-contributed localization efforts underway to support additional languages. Join the efforts today.
