Hello NetCAT 8.0 participants,

    So, if you are struggling with a really serious bug in your daily 
work with the NetBeans IDE 8.0 and it is already reported in Bugzilla, 
don't hesitate to add 80patch-candidate keyword to "Whiteboard" field of 
such bug. The deadline is this *Thursday - April 17th COB* last timezone.

    We are very thankful to all for help with nomination of NetBeans IDE 
8.0 Patch 1 candidate bugs.

Have a successful week everyone!

[80cat] Netbeans platform version in maven repository

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.

[80cat] Advice from Mac users

Hi, before this list is dismissed, I would like to ask advice to our Mac 
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.

[80cat] [news] NetCAT 8.0 Game Over, Thank You!

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 [1].

[1] 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!

[80cat] netbeans.org still says 7.4

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.

[80cat] Re: Java ME support

Hello Vitaliy,

    in order to see "Mobile Application" project type in the wizard you 
must first go to "Tools > Plugins > Available Plugins", check "Mobility" 
plugin, click "Install" button and proceed with the installation. If 
this is not mentioned in the tutorial, the instructions must be updated.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

[80cat] Re: error badges

There is still some kind of problem with error badges... And now I think it is worse than before. But it is too late to report, lol.

Please add your steps to the appropriate issues in bugzilla. They are easy to find on the NB8 dashboard, because they are P1 (since today)

Best regards, markiewb

Okay,  I have reproduced something.
I make an error in a .java file and save.  It shows up with the error indicator everywhere it is supposed to.  Then I exit NB and re-launch.  That puts me in the state where the file has the error and it is marked on the package, but not the file in the project view, and not on the tab in the editor.  This of course makes it hard to find as the the trail of error badges in the packages suddenly ends with no source file identified.

Soon as I make a change to that file and save, all the error badges are corrected.

I can put an obvious error in a .java file, the line is flagged as having an error and the package is flagged as having an error, but the file is not. Not in the project view nor the editor tab.

I'm running build 201402100001.

can you please always try to check (and properly report) for what file
type this happens? The screenshot here was with .js file while the bug
report is in the java category. If it is happening just with one
language it should be reported for that language (java/something, etc),
if the problem is generic it should be reported to some generic category

Thanks for making the bug reports as specific as possible,
