o.n.m.dlight.api.tool.ToolsConfiguration.getToolsSet() scans folder DLight/ToolConfigurationProviders for DLightToolConfigurationProvider instances, and improperly uses InstanceCookie.instanceClass().newInstance() instead of InstanceCookie.instanceCreate() to create provider instance.
This incorrect code used to work for our existing tools, but it does not work for standalone DLight tools created from XML.
We need to fix this in patch 2 for standalone DLight. The bug is already fixed in trunk.
Fixed in trunk almost two weeks ago: http://hg.netbeans.org/cnd-main/rev/125b6a94bec7
Fix is OK. Safe and correct.
The fix from trunk can be applied to release68_fixes as is.
It's a technical issue and can not be verified by QA.
The bugfix has been ported into the release68_fixes branch.
