New release

Released: NetBeans IDE 8.1 Beta

Geertjan Wielenga

NetBeans IDE 8.1 Beta has been released. With a strong focus on brand new Node.js application development tools, the new release brings a range of new features for developers using JavaScript, HTML, Java, PHP, and C/C++.

NetBeans IDE 8.1 Beta has been released. NetBeans IDE has a track record, built up over 15 years, of delivering complete and comprehensive tools for Java developers. Over the last few years, NetBeans IDE has been achieving the same for JavaScript developers. In particular, NetBeans IDE 8.1 introduces complete and comprehensive tools for Node.js application development. Together with benefiting from a beefed up JavaScript editor, Node.js users can now for the first time use the IDE to create, run, and debug Node.js applications, as well as create applications using the Express application framework for Node.js.

Other enhancements for JavaScript developers include brand new tools for Gulp, Mocha, Selenium, and Jade, while there are a range of enhancements to the tools for AngularJS and KnockoutJS. For Java developers, there are many enhancements too, including a completely redesigned Java Profiler, as well as performance enhancements, code completion improvements, and better search/navigation tools. Remote Oracle WebLogic is supported, together with community-contributed support for WildFly 9 and WildFly 10.
