NetBeans IDE 6.1

Netbeans IDE 6.1 has been released. For the past few months netbeans has been developed quite rapidly.. I was using version 6.0.1 before using the latest 6.1 version.

There's nothing new in installation process , except it's quite faster in comparison with previous releases. I have installed it in my solaris (solaris express developer edition 9/07) and linux (fedora 7) system.Click here to check out downloading and installation instructions.

Are you trying to install NB 6.1 in open solaris 05/08 ??? check out my experience.

Anyway , few things I have noticed just after the installation process :

* startup services : This IDE evolves a quick indexing of all necessary files from jdk installation directory , directories created under user's home etc. , performs a scanning task and compiles all source files from the open projects.
** Adds nb projects : All projects from "NetBeansProject" folder will be automatically added in this IDE as well as other NetBeans projects which resides in the same directory where netbeans is installed. If you have older versions installed in your system , nb settings can be imported in the latest version (just like previous releases).

*** Update notification : A popup message at the right hand corner will show you how many updates are currently available , apply them to make it up to date.
