netbeans 6.8 RC2

I have been using netbeans 6.8 RC2 for a couple of days for web development  doing my day job and it is looking good. (Java5 SE web, DWR and ExtJS)

Starts up much faster and is seems generally much more responsive all round.

The only problem encountered so far is that the editor windows do not maximize/restore which is already in the netbeans bug list, other than that I reckon it is ready to ship.

Netbeans 6.8 RC's

netbeans 6.8 RC2 is out and much improved in terms of performance over 6.8 beta and 6.7.1.

I am using RC2 for my web app development, its early days but looking really good this time. Will post more when I have had time to use it more this week.

Still no Apache Geronimo support though, shame.

RC1 wasnt much use to me, I tried it on a couple of different machines and could not get web apps to deploy due to missing dependancy issues out of the box, this is fixed in RC2.
