I asked Geertjan Wielenga about a possible JavaFX rewrite of NetBeans 
back in March, and he said that although they'll keep pulling in JavaFX 
features such as WebView on a case-by-case basis, a total rewrite is not 
going to happen. So the IDE is going to remain Swing-based.

PS: I already sent this reply from another email address (not the one 
that's subscribed to this list) but that was two days ago and it's 
apparently been lost in moderation. Apologies if it appears twice.
