NetBeans IDE 7.1 introduces support for JavaFX 2.0, as well as tools for visual debugging of Swing and JavaFX user interfaces. Additional highlights include Git support integrated into the IDE, new PHP debugging features, various Java EE and Maven improvements, and more. The IDE provides extensive support for Apache Subversion with GUI tools that make versioning easy.
NetBeans's Subversion support was the product of collaboration between CollabNet and the NetBeans community. The NetBeans IDE makes accessing Subversion, Git, Mercurial or CVS repositories easy. The editor uses color coding to highlight added/deleted/modified lines. Use the diff viewer to resolve merge conflicts in an intuitive way. Integrated version control access to such sites as java.net and netbeans.org, is pre-configured: When you get sources for projects hosted on java.net, for example, they open right in the IDE.
