Hi, I watched this page but our book http://wiki.netbeans.org/ BookNBPlatformCookbook has not been linked in NB sources. I do not understand why it was ignored. But it is visited still even it is so old.

Once all interested parties register with the google group (or with any other means) we could start voting. Next would be that we have enough authors for the 15 chapters of the book and then that each author selects a chapter to write. But this will come later. Pending task from me to provide a list of all netbeans books. Most of them can be found here <https://netbeans.org/kb/articles/books.html#about>. Regards, John.
