Now NetBeans 6.10.M1 is released so we can try the early access version of this support. Most important thing is as I've mentioned, PrimeFaces is now bundled with NetBeans so you don't need to download PrimeFaces manually. When creating a new JSF...

I've introduced the new Theme Gallery with PrimeFaces 2.1, before that PrimeFaces had only one skin called yui-skin-sam which wasn't flexible and easy to use.

With the new skinning, structure and skinning styles are seperated so you don't need to know about .ui-panel-header to style it but know about...
