1.1.7 if I remember correctly. I hope you didn't spend any of your hard
earned cash on VJ++ ;-). If I were you (and I was once) I would run as
far away from VJ++ as possible.

I'll second Chris on NetBeans (http://www.netbeans.org), it is an
awesome Java IDE (it's even written in Java and 100% portable). It's
actually probably the best one on the market. At least from what I have
seen, and I have looked into all the majors (JBuilder, VisualCafe,
VisualAge, etc).
