  2. Always did like netbeans as an IDE more than eclipse. Still do, although not doing much coding these days usually - but for some reason I keep netbeans installed for when I feel like mucking around. First used it way back in forte4j days.

     

    Noticed this in the list:

    C/C++

    • Memory usage reduced by at least half for big projects

    I'll bet someone was pretty proud of that "little" performance tweak eh?

    Memory usage cut by half - hope the people who got that worked out got shouted some beers for that.

    Anyhow, to all the netbeans guys - thankyou for another interesting sounding release.

    regards,

  3. NetBeans Rules[ Go to top ]

    It's great to have an open source choice, NetBeans user since I've changed from Windows development (Delphi) to Java.Think NetBeans started as "Xelph"i to create a Delphi like approach for IDE. 

    Wonderful that NetBeans maintains a foucs for supporting standards also very appreciative for Oracle's continued endorsment for this awesome IDE!
