[801cat] Re : [news] 8.0.1 FCS readiness check started

Does this build includes the fix for java code completion performance, or is this fix still on daily builds?

Thanks,

 

Atenciosamente,

Hello NetCAT participants,    I am glad to inform you that we have successfully built the NetBeans IDE 8.0.1 First Customer Ship which is ready to be sanity tested. I have created a new test run in Synergy called "NetBeans IDE 8.0.1 FCS readiness check" and it is open for new assignments. This will be of course purely voluntary based testing again but we would very much appreciate it if at least some of you help us verify that the build does not contain any serious regression. [1] http://services.netbeans.org/synergy/client/app/#/run/15/v/2    So, if you have some time over the weekend or on Monday, here is hopefully already known procedure what to do:    1. Visit the 8.0.1 FCS readiness Check test run [1].    2. Scroll down a bit and click the "Volunteer" button.    3. Select your operating system in the "Platform" pull down menu.    4. Select either 8.0.1 or 8.0 specification version.    5. In the "Specification" section select some test specification you are willing to go through and then push "Create" button.    6. Go to the test run once again, scroll down to find the test assignment you have just created for yourself and start the testing by pushing ">" Start button.    7. The rest should be already familiar to you and intuitive.    8. The deadline to finish this sanity check is Tuesday 8/19 - 8:00 AM UTC.    Should you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask on this mailing list. If you are going to try NetBeans 8.0 to 8.0.1 upgrade scenario, please don't be surprised that Java Web and EE functionality won't be available after the upgrade [2]. :| [2] https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=246476 Thanks to everyone who will contribute some testing effort! Happy testing, -Jirka P.S. As usually, please do not share the download URL off this list for obvious reasons. :)

50 or more activity points [1] will get the red classic cut NetBeans 8.0 
t-shirt. In addition to that, first 19 person with 200 activity points 
or more will also get the black universal NetBeans t-shirt with long 
sleeves. See attached screenshots.

[801cat] Some issues with 8.0.1RC1

Hi,
Got 2 issues simply using the latest version (for testing) this morning :
 - Got 2 method breakpoints on the same method while trying to remove the one I had put after renaming the method (using the refactor wizard) . I had to go throught the breakpoints windows to remove them.
 - Couldn't create a constructor : getting a NPE everytime https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=246371

Hard monday morning :(

[801cat] Problem running NetBeans 8.0.1 RC on jdk 7u67

Has anyone else run into this, or am I doing something wrong.
I have a use case for running on JDK 7.
1.7.0_51 works fine, but no luck with _67.

[801cat] Checksum (MD5 hash) doesn't match latest 8.0.1RC download

Jirka-

I noticed that the Checksum (MD5 hash) on the latest latest 8.0.1RC doesn't match what's listed on the download page, at least for the Windows downloads; I haven't checked the others yet. 
I assume it's okay; perhaps (?) the web page didn't get updated.

Best regards,

[801cat] [news] Deadline for test of 8.0.1 RC extended

Hello NetCAT participants,

    since GlassFish 4.1 slips by a week we adjusted our schedule too. 
This gives us more time so I extended the deadline for those of you who 
will have some time this coming weekend.

[1] http://services.netbeans.org/synergy/client/app/#/run/12/v/2

    Me and Vladimír Říha are going to join this test run too and it 
would be cool if also some other yet unknown :) volunteers show up and 
help test the new 8.0.1 RC. Just scroll down and click "Volunteer" 
assignment, select "8.0" version and any test specification you like!

    Please note that we have rebuilt the RC build so it has new build 
number. Download URL is available in the description of the test run [1].

If we don't test it, nobody else will.

Thank you folks!
-Jirka

[80cat] patch test

I installed it and updated to the patch and opened, compiled and ran a JavaSE and JavaEE web project with no problems, but have not time to do any more than that. I can't really give it a go or no-go since I don't have time to do more testing.

[80cat] cannot edit netbeans.conf

Strange. I just in stalled the Windows Java SE executable installation version and I can't edit the netbeans.conf file. I get a message I can't access it when I try to save. I have never seen that happen before. This is the first time I have ever installed the Java SE executable version.

[80cat] Re : Re: [news] NetBeans IDE 8.0 Patch 1 test

Sorry, I gave up.

All my bugs are posted, and can be easily search by mail user/mail if there is interest.

I'm probably making the wrong movement, but I'm not seeing my expectations fulfilled.

 

Thanks to the others who are more resilient than me. This is a great product, hope continue to improve in future.

 

Regards. 

 

Edson

Hi folks,    so far it seems that only Benno Markiewicz decided to help with NetBeans 8.0 Patch 1 testing. Is this really so little? Nobody else?    BTW, there are two potential stoppers found so far: #244049 [1] and #244047 [2]. If we rebuild the Patch 1 modules today, I will surely let you know and postpone the deadline by 1 day. Please stay tuned.
