NetBeans.org has finally released NetBeans IDE 5.0 Final. The link is to the announcement on Javalobby. If you are using NetBeans 4.1, you need to upgrade now. The difference is just incredible. Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA now have some serious competition to worry about and Matisse puts them all to shame. Peronaly im not a dedicated Netbeans user, but this might just make me take a closer look.
