Netbeans 6 RC1 available.

Code completion is second to none and the features included are making NetBeans the IDE of choice for many people and I’m fast becoming one of them.  I still like Aptana’s Javascript CSS and HTML handling so won’t be giving it up just yet but for Ruby, Rails and Java, NetBeans 6 is my tool of choice.

NetBeans 6 is not NetBeans 5 with some new bits and bug fixes, this is a whole new development and it shows.
