By: Admin, 20 Jan 2006
The NetBeans.org Open Source Project is proud to announce the availability of NetBeans IDE 5.0 Release Candidate 2 (RC2), NetBeans Platform 5.0 RC2, NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.0 RC2 and NetBeans Profiler RC2.
NetBeans IDE 5.0 Release Candidate 2
The NetBeans Platform has been around for years, but NetBeans 5.0 makes module (plug-in) development much easier and smoother than ever before. New project types have been added to NetBeans IDE 5.0 which allows developers to easily extend the NetBeans IDE with modules (plug-ins) or build rich client applications on top of the NetBeans Platform.
NetBeans Mobility Pack 5.0 adds several new keys features to an already powerful and easy-to-use mobile Java development tool, including: Improved end-to-end support for building web services-based mobile applications for any MIDP device, new custom components in the Visual Mobile Designer, improved pre-processor support for device fragmentation, editable generated code and improved emulator support.
NetBeans Profiler RC2 is the latest release of its high-performance Java application profiler, an add-on to the NetBeans IDE release 5. Application profilers are crucial to building reliable, scalable applications as they provide information about the run-time behaviour of applications. The new version of the NetBeans Profiler will help optimize the Java application development process by providing tighter run-time monitoring of CPU, memory, and threads, in addition to new early access support for the Mac OS X. mailing lists!
