Subject [VOTE] Release Apache NetBeans 10.0 (incubating) [vote candidate 3]
Date Tue, 13 Nov 2018 00:55:55 GMT
Dear all,

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

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

Apache NetBeans 10.0 (incubating) constitutes all but the enterprise cluster 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, PHP, JavaScript and Groovy
features of Apache NetBeans.

In short, Apache NetBeans 10.0 (incubating) is a full IDE for Java SE and PHP, JavaScript
development with some Groovy language support.

Build artifacts available here:

The specific artifact to be voted on:

Included in the above are the DEPENDENCIES, DISCLAIMER, LICENSE, and NOTICE files, as well
as a README file with build instructions, which are the same as these:

SHA1: 028b47ca10118e616208e4949fb79c2e38d74fd5

KEYS file:

Apache NetBeans Git Repo tag: 10.0-vc3 :

Note: NetBeans license violation checks are managed via the rat-exclusions.txt file:

Rat report shows no unknown licenses, except for license files:

Included as a convenience binary, not relevant for the voting purposes (unzip it, run it and
you'll see Apache NetBeans):

Release specific wiki page:

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. As this is our first multi purpose (Java SE, PHP, JS,
Groovy) release, some features has to be enabled in Tools > Plugins > Installed tab,
or get's automatically enabled on first use of a feature.

If the above succeeds, i.e., Apache NetBeans installs and starts up vote +1 in this thread.

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

This vote is open for 5 days.
[ ] +1 Release this package as Apache NetBeans 10.0 (incubating)
[ ] 0 I don't feel strongly about it, but I'm okay with the release
[ ] -1 Do not release this package because...
