NetBeans 7.3 release adds a load of HTML5 and Javascript features for developers

I have been using NetBeans since 2005 and development has really accelerated in the last 2 years. I have been lucky enough to be involved in beta testing the latest release (although  ’beta testing’ is not really the right phrase because it has been pretty stable even in its pre-release versions).

Oracle have now announced the full release of NetBeans 7.3 and it brings support for HTML5 and JavaScript to an already powerful Java IDE. You get sophisticated HTML5 and JavaScript editing and debugging capabilities in a free, fully-featured and cross-platform development environment (so things like refactoring, version control, etc are all there). I recommend you have a look at netbeans.org

 

This post is part of our “NetBeans article Index” series. In these articles, we aim to explore NetBeans in different ways, from useful hint and tips, to our how-to’s, experiences and usage of the NetBeans IDE.
