Hi Alex, thanks for your comments about NetBeans.

As for Java EE 5 support, NetBeans 5.5's main theme is support for Java EE 5. It should be out relatively soon - it is planned to be released in October. It will be one of the very first IDEs to support the full EE 5 spec (makes me wonder when WTP from Eclipse will get this far). As for the other focus points, I can't agree more, tight integration with other projects, community focus and outreach are essecential.

Next to that I think NetBeans has to come with more innovations, especially in areas where we didn't innovate before. Project Matisse is an example of current successfull innovative feature - we need more of such projects (as for other interesting projects where our competition is currently catching up I recommend to check out e.g. the profiler, mobility support or the enterprise tools such as UML modeller).

And as for the scripting languages - why to fight something you can embrace? Scripting languages will work well on top of Java platform thanks to a couple of new JSRs (some support already in JDK 6), so they will need good tooling support... ;)
