The latest version of NetBean is now available for download. The big addition for this release is the JavaFX Composer, which provides a nice visual GUI builder for your GUI applications. Rapid UI development like this should really help with JavaFX adoption. 

The other big features include OSGi framework support in the NetBeans platform, most notably Eclipe's Equinox, as well as the Felix OSGi framework. There's also support for Spring 3.0, JavaCard 3, JSR-299 (Contexts and Dependency Injection), Rails 3 and PHP Zend support. 

Looks like a very complete release, that should prompt people who haven't seen any of the newer NetBeans releases to take a look and re-evaluate. 

There's a nice set of screencasts available. Geertjan provides this video that shows how to use NetBeans 6.9 for your application development:
