The NetBeans Team has released an updated to NetBeans 8.0, with enhancements to features relating to HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3.

NetBeans 8.0 was launched at the same time as Java 8, a timing that made it clear that Oracle was trying to have NetBeans accepted as the standard IDE for Java.

It has support for JDK 8 with tools and editor enhancements for working with profiles, lambdas, and streams; Java ME Embedded 8 support; and the ability to deploy, run, debug or profile Java SE applications on an embedded device, such as Raspberry PI, directly from the NetBeans IDE, togather with several Java Editor enhancements

It also expanded support for Maven and for Java EE with PrimeFaces; introduced new tools for HTML5, in particular for AngularJS; and brought improvements to PHP and C/C++ support.

The decimal point update, 8.0.1 comes less than six months later and has the following features:

  • Modularity and enterprise JavaScript development support via integration of RequireJS
  • Support for debugging JavaScript files with Karma

  • Node.JS and Bower modules can be installed directly within the IDE

  • Grunt tasks available in the popup menu for web projects

  • Support for the latest versions of GlassFish, Tomcat, WildFly, and WebLogic

  • Latest PrimeFaces framework bundled in the IDE

  • Enhanced Java tools

  • Improved Git support

In addition recent patches have been integrated.
