Take 60 minutes to understand the Power of the Actor Model with "Designing Reactive Systems: The Role Of Actors In Distributed Architecture". Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

The NetBeans open source project is proud to announce that NetBeans IDE 6.0.1 is available in the Ubuntu Hardy Heron universe repository.

If Ubuntu Hardy is your favorite system, then you can very easily install NetBeans IDE 6.0.1 on your machine via the Synaptic Package Manager. Invoke System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager and search "netbeans" in the available packages.

The distribution contains the NetBeans Java SE 6.0.1 distro. Missing features like Web&j2EE and Mobility can be installed from the NetBeans Update center (click on Tools -> Plugins and choose Available Plugins tab). The package has a dependency on OpenJDK, which is a fully buildable Java Development Kit based completely on free and open source code.

The NetBeans project is looking for people to use this NetBeans 6.0.1 distribution with OpenJDK on a daily basis. To pass on feedback and if you encounter issues, please report them to NetBeans Issuezilla.

Learn how the Actor model provides a simple but powerful way to design and implement reactive applications that can distribute work across clusters of cores and servers. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.
