I've just started using NetBeans ( on Windows having also used it on Ubuntu.

(As title hints, it was designed for Java but it is also designed to work for C++).

Seems promising but I haven't had enough use to give a definite recommendation.

Seems a hassle to get a recent compiler like g++ 4.7 or Clang on Windows (default is gcc 3.4.4).
