Subject Re: [news] NetBeans 8.2 & JDK 8 Update 151 bundle testing

I'll defer to Hermien and Jiri, but that does not seem OK to me since your
installation will presumably still contain changes from Build
201705191307. Even
if you are seeing no problems, there may be issues due to patches contained
in that build. Unlikely but possible, right?

I do have Build 201609300101, although I also specifically uninstalled my
existing NetBeans 8.2 installation first, before running
*jdk-8u151-nb-8_2-windows-x64.exe*. Here are my settings:

*Product Version:* NetBeans IDE 8.2 (Build 201609300101)

*Updates:* NetBeans IDE is updated to version NetBeans 8.2 Patch 2

*Java:* 1.8.0_151; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.151-b12

*Runtime:* Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.8.0_151-b12

*System:* Windows 10 version 10.0 running on amd64; Cp1252; en_US (nb)

Also, it seems unlikely that you "only installed JDK 8u151" since you now
have *NetBeans 8.2 Patch 2*. I don't think that "*Patch 2*" would have been
displayed prior to your update. Perhaps the NetBeans installer should
verify that its build (i.e. 201609300101) is more recent than that of the
currently installed build when updating an existing installation of
