Netbeans 6.7m2 - L&F Totally Refurbished On Mac - A Screenshot

I switched some projects to Netbeans 6.7m2 to test how it works. The L&F was totally refurbished on mac (see here). I included the screenshot into the wiki, so you can compare it directly with e.g. Nimbus vs. Vista.

Netbeans 6.7m2 works fine so far for me - stay stuned.


Voll geil sieht es aus! ;-)

Translation attempt: It looks cool. :-)

Ramon: it looks clean, I like it At the first glance the L&F was somehow strange for me.

thanks for your comment!,

But not everybody has a Macbook.
I would like the swing Metal ui under windows and linux, but it is ugly in NetBeans.
Other swing application like JEdit, Oxygen editor, it's Metal L&F are better than NetBeans.

on Windows I'm using Nimbus - (see screenshot in the wiki) and It is actually hard to say, what L&F looks better,

One more reason to seriously consider Netbeans for my day-to-day development. Seems like I already have to update my fresh installation.

Some of the projects in your screenshot look familiar BTW. ;)

Greetings from Erfurt,

yes - as I told you - I will install and try netbeans 6.7m2 in the plane. NB 6.7m2 just reused all the settings from our workshop, there is no NDA involved - so it was just perfect for the screenshot. But the screenshot is not the ultimate reason - state tuned!

Btw. you have a great homepage - I like it :-),
