NetBeans 6.7 beta integrates project Kenai
Sun Microsystems has released a beta for version 6.7 of its NetBeans open source development environment. The main new feature of the modular IDE for developing in Java, Groovy, Ruby, C/C++ and PHP is the Kenai collaboration platform, a connected developer destination that allows developer teams to host their projects for collaboration with other developers. Another focus is the native support of the Maven build system.
NetBeans 6.7 is designed to be an intermediary release between NetBeans version 6.5 and version 7.0, and focuses on minor changes and API compatibility. The developers plan to release the final version in June. The software is available under Sun's Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL) and the GPL 2.
