I develop applications on the NetBeans Platform. To aid in debugging something, I needed to download the source for NetBeans 6.7.1. Instead of being able to do this, I encountered an error "Nothing found - search again" and was able to reproduce this with other versions from the archive.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to this URL:
2. Click the "Archive" link in the upper-right of the page. The URL of the resulting page is:
I mention this URL only because the 'dev.php' seems odd since we requested archive (older) rather than dev (unreleased) versions. Also, there is text in the upper-left of the page which says "Unrecognised language (en-us,en), defaulting to English". Maybe that's related to the problem I am reporting or maybe it's another problem you'll want to solve.
3. Select 6.7.1 in the "NetBeans Version :" combo.
4. Only "Other" is shown in the "Build Type" combo. When I click "Continue" I get a page which says "Nothing found - search again".
I was able to reproduce this for other versions I tried, including 6.9.1, 6.5.1 and 6.1. In the past, we have been able to download versions of NetBeans dating back 10 years or more.
Hello Tom, this is now fixed.
Thanks, Jan. I have just verified that I am able to download 6.7.1 and 6.9.1 now. I imagine the other versions will work OK too.
