My 2 cents. I wish to use stable and quick IDE. I don't want to update my working tool too often.

Really 10 Weeks? 2 more months? I mean I don’t know it really, because it is a

want to have more release cycles and less time between Releases. My 2 cents.

Is this only on 10 or with 10 as Platform as well (thinking of var ...)

My personal opinion:
-NetBeans IDE should run on JDK 10
-ideally it should be possible to have a (J2SE/Maven) project using JDK 10
as well, including support for var (shouldn't be difficult, see the jdk18_3
branch in the official repository; depends on whether we can add a feature
like this at this stage).
-the NetBeans IDE itself can't use JDK 9/10 features, as it still should
run on JDK 8.
-for applications based on NetBeans platform, the build system currently
does not (AFAIK) support JDK 9/10, but if someone wanted to work on that, I
think it would be useful.


Looking forward to an awesine first Apache NetCat..


P.S.  Is Synergy already hosted on Apache infrastructure?

Hello NetBeans community,

    now that we have Apache NetBeans 9.0 Beta officially released to
we would like to start our traditional Beta testing program called
We would like to send out the official invitation on Monday - February
but before we proceed Hermien and me would like to present our plan how
NetCAT 9.0 will be organized and ask for constructive feedback. Please
in mind to voice your concerns by the end of this week. We will attempt
address your questions or suggestions but we still hope you will simply
like what we have prepared. :)

Here we go:

1. NetCAT 9.0 will roughly take 10 weeks i.e. ~2 months. We allocated 2
weeks for review of test specifications, followed by 4 weeks of testing
bug fixing phase, at the end finished by 3 week long community
survey. For more details see our projected schedule [1].

2. The testing will be tracked in Synergy - NetBeans test specification
and test run management system. NetCAT 9.0 participants will be divided
into 9 tribes focusing on one of 9 crucial functionality areas each.

3. We have drafted quality criteria [2] which we would like to meet for
the GA release. In short, we aim to fix all blocker issues, fix or
all critical issues and fix all CA blockers. We would also like to take
votes into account as you can read in the Bug Priority Guidelines [3].

4. Apache NetBeans 9.0 Beta will be primarily tested on latest JDK 8
JDK 10.


Please let us know if we can fly with this plan. :)

Thanks for your feedback!
Best regards,
Jirka & Hermien
