Milestone 5 of NetBeans 6.0 (Dev) is now available for download.
The biggest change in M5 is Java editor improvements and new Java language infrastructure that is based on the Javac. The APIs will give you full access to the Javac APIs for given source.
Additionally, NetBeans 6.0 M5 contains the following improvements:
- Ant processes have a progress indicator in the status line.
- A new “project group” feature has been added.
Due to the integration of the new Java language infrastructure, most of Java EE development features are disable in Milestone 5 and also Mobility and Profiler packs aren’t released as part of this milestone.
