NetBeans 5.0 Release Candidate 2 and Updated Add-ons Now Available

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 5.0 RC2 release includes comprehensive support for developing IDE modules and rich client applications based on the NetBeans Platform, the new intuitive GUI builder Matisse, new and redesigned CVS support, Sun Application server, Weblogic9 and JBoss 4 support, other editor enhancements, and bug fixes.

NetBeans Platform 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 Release Candidate 2
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 Release Candidate 2
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. The NetBeans IDE 5.0 final release is planned for later this month. As always wewelcome and encourage your feedback and the sharing of your experience on the NetBeans mailing lists!
