please coordinate this remaining testing of PHP with Jim so that you two don't do the same thing. It would be wasting of valuable resources. :)

OK, looking at the spreadsheet, well as of today, Windows XP, Windows 8
and Ubuntu are complete for PHP. I should be able to complete Windows 7
on Thursday or Friday (Holiday here in the US). I have a tribe member
signed up for Mac OS, but I will break out the old beast just in case
they no longer have time…. Yes I am aware that Windows 8 was not on the
list, but I had a machine with it, so I tested there anyway.
Just something to throw out there: On my Redhat (Fedora) box I noticed
that I did receive some differences when I ran under KDE v Gnome. No
errors, but the GUI looked different and some controls reacted
differently. Of course I wasn’t taking notes as I was just playing, is
this something known?

Hello NetCAT team,
it's the right time for the regular cup of NetCAT news again.
*1. Overall summary*
It's been already the third week in NetCAT 7.3 when more bugs were filed
than e-mails exchanged. Fortunately, it's not that many so the total bug
count went down again. 21 NetCAT participants reported *~8.3 bugs* daily
so together with 174 bugs from other community and 115 bugs from Oracle
engineers the income stopped at 347 new bugs. NetBeans developers
resolved 451 bugs. The traffic on mailing list was so low that I thought
the mailing server was down. :-) 18 participants generated only *~5.3
messages* per day. We wish the full testing has been progressing
smoothly however reality is different. Even though the testing is the
primary goal now 3 tutorials reviews were contributed. Several OOMEs
occurred again, problems with IDE/GF installation were mentioned and
some participants suggested to support more application servers. If you
are interested to know more, continue reading below.
*2. Important stuff*
* _Full testing of 7.3 development builds_ is slowly going on but the
progress is not as good as we would need. We only have 3 weeks left
but ~40% of the whole IDE functionality still has not been tested.
:-\ If compared with 7.2 release, we left only 4% untested. Besides,
the total time to test important features on one platform increased
from 179 hours (7.2) to 184 hours (7.3). Finally, in 7.3 there are
28% of features not tested by anyone whereas it was only 17% not
covered in 7.2.
* According to the latest information the following _tribes are
participating_ in the full test: API Support, Debugger, PHP, GUI
Builder, CND, DB and Groovy. I have _no status update_ from these
tribes: Maven, CVS and Web Client. Could leaders of these teams
coordinate this testing and Cc: me in the communication? Thanks!
* So far the best work comes from _Debugger and API Support tribes_. I
would like to especially appreciate work of /Dhawal Saiya/, /William
Bacchi/ and /Hermien Pellissier/, who already greened their first
If you finished your part, don't forget to do the same. If you don't
know how, just let me know!
* We are looking for _volunteers_ who would test the following
features (required time is in parenthesis): *Wizards* (15 minutes),
*Quick Search* (15 minutes), *Options* (30 minutes), *Plugin
Manager* (2.5 hours), *Output Window* (12 minutes), *Task List* (30
minutes) and *Java Help* (15 minutes). Please raise your hand if you
are available! Thanks a 10e6!
* /Efrem McCrimon/ not being a member of any tribe could afford
contribution of _3 tutorial reviews_ 
strengthened his 4th place after /Marcin Starnacki/ (23 reviews),
/Marco Molteni/ (19) and /Yonathan Weldegebriel/ (15). So, currently
there are 94 unique tutorials reviewed with still only 9 NoGo
verdicts. 6 more to 100! ;-)
* /Angelo Quaglia/ repeated that _installation of GlassFish Update
Center failed_ in his environment due to 404: Not Found HTTP error.
We cannot reproduce it though. Are you behind a Proxy or connected
to the Internet directly? If this still does not work, please file a
new bug Angelo.
* /Lehel Sipos/ _couldn't install JDK 7 Update 10_ on his Windows XP
due to Error 1316. A network error occurred... problem. This seems
like a Windows specific problem though. Microsoft recommends to
un-install the JDK in Add or Remove Programs feature in Control
Panel and then give it another try.
* There was a discussion about _application servers_. It's okay that
you don't see Tomcat as an option when creating an Enterprise
Application. Only GlassFish supports EARs however several
participants required to extend the offering with TomEE (#212198
<http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=212198>) and JBoss
Should TomEE replace Tomcat in Servers or just complement it?
* If you like /Manikantan Narender Nath/ use _your own Maven_, don't
be surprised that now it's not detected automatically in the
Options. You can still browse to its location though.
* Finally, according to /José Galaviz/, no servers were registered
when he installed #201211170002. Has anyone seen this? Does it work
in #201211200002 José?
*3. Bug hunting*
* /Augusto Campos/ noticed he always ended up with a
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError if his _big PHP project was being
his *.js file with almost 1 million characters =-O is too much for
Garbage Collector. We are looking into this.
* Marcin and /Junming Guan/ both reported that _opening a database_
threw java.lang.IllegalStateException (#221817
<http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=221817>). This should
be fixed already. Can you guys please verify the fix? Thanks a lot!
* /Kent Grundström/ found a regression in _Java Debugger_ throwing
java.lang.AssertionError when _Security Manager_ was used (#222077
<http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222077>). The fix is
waiting for your verification Kent. Thank you!
* /Stefan Wilfling/ added a new method to an already implemented
Interface which made _IDE unusable_ ultimately leading to a
<http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222114>). We must
balance _Low Memory Watcher_ better to avoid such problems. Great
* /Eugen-Andrei Gavriloaie/ complained that he was _not able to
reformat_ his *.cc file (#222337
<http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222337>) however we
cannot reproduce it. We will give it more tries.
* /Michael Nascimento/'s _IDE deadlocked_ while organizing import
<http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=221940>). The buggy UI
Handler does no longer hurry with update of the tooltip and you know
what's needed Michael, right? :-) Thanks!
* Best bug reporter of the previous week was /Edson Richter/ with *9*
reported bugs mainly against the Java Editor.
* 5 high priority bugs were filed last week and two of them were fixed.
