Date Tue, 24 Jul 2018 05:27:03 GMT
Hi all,

The Apache NetBeans community has voted on and approved a proposal to release Apache NetBeans
9.0 (incubating) [vc3].

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

Vote thread:

Vote result thread:

In the above, note there are two IPMC binding votes from Ate Douma and Bertrand Delacretaz,
both Apache NetBeans (incubating) mentors, 11 PPMC votes and 16 Apache NetBeans community

Apache NetBeans 9.0 (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 (incubating) is a full IDE for Java SE development.

How (and what) to try out the release:

1. Download the artifact to be voted on and unzip it.
2. Verify the cryptographic signatures, the NOTICE and LICENSE file
3. Build it using the README provided by the artifact.
4. Look in nbbuild/netbeans for the NetBeans installation created by the build process.
5. 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, vote +1 in this thread.

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

The vote is open for 5 days.

[ ] +1 Release this package as Apache NetBeans 9.0 (incubating)
