Java Sun Microsystems has announced the release of an open-source version of its Java Development Kit for Java Platform Standard Edition. Sun has contributed the software to the OpenJDK Community as free software under the GNU GPLv2. Sun also announced that OpenJDK-based implementations can use the JCK (Java SE 6 Technical Compatibility Kit) to establish compatibility with the Java SE 6 specification. OpenBSD has already started importing the release.

The latest version of Netbeans is brilliant. Before it was an absolute pain for anyone used to MS style GUI creation. Now you just drag & drop components and matisse magically takes care of all the container stuff for you but you still get all the power of Swing. Components automatically align and space themselves removing a lot of drudgery of VB style drag & drop.
