The NetBeansTM organization issued its first edition of NetBeans Magazine as part of the third annual NetBeans Software Day and the 2006 JavaOneSM Conference that took place in mid-May. This special first edition of NetBeans Magazine showcases a wide selection of IDE and extension features, from desktop and web development to plug-in module creation.
