Subject [VOTE] Release Apache NetBeans 9.0 RC1 (incubating) rc1
Date Sun, 20 May 2018 22:33:02 GMT
Hi all,

The Apache NetBeans community has voted on and approved a proposal to release Apache NetBeans
9.0 RC1 (incubating) rc1.

We now kindly request that the Incubator PMC members review and vote on this incubator release

Apache NetBeans 9.0 RC1 (incubating) vote thread:

Apache NetBeans 9.0 RC1 (incubating) vote result thread:

Apache NetBeans 9.0 RC1 (incubating) constitutes all the modules in the Apache NetBeans Git
repo, which together provide the NetBeans Platform (i.e., the underlying application framework),
as well as all the modules that provide the Java SE-related features of Apache NetBeans.
In short, Apache NetBeans 9.0 RC1 (incubating) is a full IDE for Java SE development.

Release specific wiki page:

How (and what) to try out the release:

1. Download the artifact to be voted on and unzip it.
2. Build it using the README provided by the artifact.
3. Look in nbbuild/netbeans for the NetBeans installation created by the build process.
4. Run the NetBeans executable and (if you're running on JDK 8) you'll be prompted to install
nb-javac, after agreeing to its licensing terms, and (if you're running on JDK 9), you'll
be able to use javac directly from JDK 9 and, optionally, you'll be prompted to install nb-javac,
after agreeing to its licensing terms.

If the above succeeds, i.e., Apache NetBeans installs and starts up, you will have a development
environment that complies with Apache IP requirements and you should vote +1 in this thread.

Please try out the package, using the instructions above, and vote!

The vote is open for 7 days
