Java Sun has released a beta edition of the upcoming version 5 of NetBeans. The most notable feature in this new release is the Matisse GUI Builder (demo) which makes it significantly easier to develop Swing GUIs. Other improvements include more refactoring tools, better CVS integration, support for more application servers, better support for web-development, and small tweaks to the editor.

is my IDE of choice simply cause I have worked with it most and the improvements in the Beta of 5.0 are quite staggering. I think Netbeans needs to me able to deal with JSPs and autocomplete better, have features for xml and definitely as one poster already pointed out, support uml really well. Also a nice pluging for java3d would be great. There was a project at netbeans that was based on scenegraphs and such...and I think it would be great if it got completed.
