NetBeans 5.5 Beta Released

Instead of repeating what was already said in quit a few places I will just link and give my opinion of NetBeans 5.5 Beta. I think it is absolutely awesome....It is almost time for eclipse to give up...(see Eclipse Killer ). There could be some improvements to the editor and maybe some in areas where I am not very educated (J2EE and J2ME [Although from what I have done of J2ME in NetBeans it was very easy to pick up]). I really like the new Welcome screen and I especially like the UML support. I also like the C/C++ support. You can download NetBeans 5.5 from here. You can read more about it at or at the following:

Oh and I saw in your interview that you went to toronto netbeans show off ( A part of net netBeans world tour) but I found no info about it on the site... did I miss something or what?
Do you know if there's a chance that the tour stops by Montreal?

Hope to hear from you soon
