First Release Candidate Build
The NetBeans team have announced the first release candidate build of NetBeans IDE 6.9.
NetBeans IDE 6.9 introduces the JavaFX Composer for visually building JavaFX GUI applications, and brings OSGi interoperability to the NetBeans platform. There is support for developing OSGi bundles with Maven. JavaFX SDK 1.3, PHP Zend framework, and Ruby on Rails 3.0 are all supported.
The final release of NetBeans IDE 6.9 is currently planned for June. NetBeans are requesting that anyone who has tested the build, answer their NetBeans Community Acceptance survey.
