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.

Hi, one more question: I see the latest version in Maven is "RELEASE80-BETA" Is there any plan to update it? I'm developing a plugin in a very early stage, and would like () to release it for 8.0.
Hi, before this list is dismissed, I would like to ask advice to our Mac users. I have a coworker who has just finished his switch from Eclipse. Netbeans 8 was the last push to do the move. (so, this goes to the whole team; a Real World(TM) success case; good there!) I have been helping him and giving tech support (he's a great developer, so support is seldom trivial) He's delighted, but is complaining that it's unstable and often freezes. Is there anything he can do (settings, start up parameters, environment, etc.) to improve Netbeans performance? I suppose he's using it out-of-the-box, without many settings changes. Thanks
Hello NetCAT team, this is my last official e-mail to this mailing list announcing that the NetCAT 8.0 program has reached its end. I have calculated activity of all NetCAT 8.0 participants and if you are interested in your own ranking, take a look at the activity overview .  http://qa.netbeans.org/processes/cat/80/activity.html The NetCAT 8.0 program was great again but do you know what I am pleased about the most? It is the smooth adoption of the Synergy test management tool. Thanks to Synergy we were able to dramatically increase number of NetCAT participants helping with sanity/full testing of 8.0 milestone builds which in the end resulted in ~430 contributed hours. Now let me recognize the most helpful NetCAT 8.0 participants. I am very happy to announce that according to the activity performance, the top 3 contributors are: 1. Manikantan Narender Nath, India, 741 points 2. Luca Mambretti, Italy, 582 points 3. Lou Dasaro, USA, 550 points In the "Special Thanks To" category the winners are: 1. Lou Dasaro, USA, 3 nominations 2. Manikantan Narender Nath, India, 2 nominations 3. Mark Wilmoth, USA, 2 nominations Congratulations folks! You really did an outstanding job! Especially, Lou's enthusiasm and hard work in the JavaFX tribe was exceptional. Finally, I for one would like to personally thank to all of you who found the time and responded in the satisfaction survey  for all your suggestions and nice comments. Thanks folks!  https://qa.netbeans.org/processes/cat/80/satisfaction_results.html Now, the very last point: as usually please help us spread the message about the new NetBeans version among your friends, user groups, in forums, on blogs, at schools etc. The NetBeans IDE 8.0 needs you one last time! So, thank you very much for all your contributions! -- -- Jiří Kovalský Former NetCAT 8.0 program coordinator ;)
Hey, guys; I made the announcement at work, but the main page still says 7.4. Have you seen this? Also, I'm downloading the Windows JavaEE bundle, but gets stuck in 153MB of 190MB.
