Subject [news] Welcome to NetCAT 9.0 program!
Date Tue, 13 Jun 2017 23:25:09 GMT
Hello NetCAT 9.0 participants,

    let me first of all warmly welcome all the well known faces (ehm, 
e-mails :) in this new Apache hosted NetCAT mailing list but more 
importantly we are thrilled to see several new supporters!

    While there are almost 80 subscribers to this list, we have only 56 
participants registered in the NetBeans dashboard [1] so if you don't 
find your name in the table, we strongly suggest to sign up [2] as soon 
as possible. Without passing this registration step, you won't have your 
account created in Synergy and you won't be able to participate in the 
official certification later.


    Today we have the very first assignment for you. As the initial 
NetBeans code donation to Apache Incubator is just round the corner we 
would like you to download the ZIP with NetBeans sources, extract these 
locally, build the IDE with ANT and then give it your first test drive. 
The more OS/JDK8/JDK9 configurations we get covered the better!

    If you spot anything suspicious either during the building process 
or using the IDE later, don't hesitate to share your findings through 
this list first and let's file common problems to JIRA [3] then.


The ZIP and instructions what to do are available here:

Thanks for your help and we declare open the NetBeans Community 
Acceptance Program (NetCAT) of version 9.0! :)

Happy testing,
Jirka & Hermien
