Hello Benno,

thanks for volunteering! What's needed is quite easy. You download the latest development build [1] and launch it with latest preview of JDK 7 Update 10 [2] on your Windows 7.

[1] http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/latest
[2] http://jdk7.java.net/download.html

Then you open one of the test specifications ([3], [4], [5]) and follow it in order to test the described feature(s). When you see some problem, report it as a new bug and go on. Once you finish your testing write your name and date when you did the test (e.g. "11/29 Benno") into the right cell in the progress spreadsheet [6] and notify me.

Thanks a lot,

    Hello NetCAT team,

    let's take a look at common achievements from the previous week.

    *1. Overall summary*

    Code Freeze milestone for 7.3 release is rapidly approaching however
    reaching quality criteria [1]
    <http://wiki.netbeans.org/NetBeans_73_Quality_Criteria> too. :-) In
    the last week 326 bugs were reported (56 by NetCAT, 156 by other
    community members) and developers were able to resolve 516 issues.
    Overall activity slightly increased to *301 BETs*
    (Bug/Email/Tutorial points = 3 * #bugs + #emails + 5 * #tutorial
    reviews ;-) ) which was achieved by 22 bug reporters, 24 e-mail
    writers and 2 tutorial reviewers. This confirms our long term
    experience that ~40% of NetCAT participants join the program for
    unknown reasons. On the other hand we are very grateful for those
    20% who keep contributing throughout the whole NetCAT cycle.
    Comparison charts are attached again for your information. A handful
    of participants helped with full testing of 7.3 development builds
    which turns the progress tracking spreadsheet more and more green.
    Please keep up as we are still not there!

    [1] http://wiki.netbeans.org/NetBeans_73_Quality_Criteria

    *2. Important stuff*

      * The following people already contributed to making sure that
        _7.3 will be well tested_ prior to its release: /Hermien
        Pellissier/, /Dhawal Saiya/, /Manikantan Narender Nath/, /Paolo
        Scarabelli/, /Medea Gugushvili/, /William Bacchi/, /Lehel Sipos/
        + few more participants promised to send their reports once
        their testing is completed. Although we managed to decrease
        number of _not tested features (now 33%)_ it seems like we will
        not make everything in the next 12 days. Or I am just too
        sceptical? :-\

      * There has been _some coordination_ among GUI Builder, Web
        Client, PHP, CND and DB tribe members. Any more actual status
        update on these areas?

      * This week we are looking for volunteers who would take a look at
        _Plugins Manager_ (*2.5 hours*), _Favorites & Templates_ view
        (*15 minutes*), _Files & Projects_ view (*1 hour*), _Java Help_
        (*15 minutes*), _Utilities_ (*15 minutes*), _Properties_ (*1
        hour*) and _Internationalization_ (*30 minutes*). Anyone
        interested to take something?

      * _Review of tutorials_ [2]
        progressed further thanks to /Marco Molteni/ (3 reviews) and
        /Efrem McCrimon/ (1 review) so we are at 98 processed documents!
        It seems like the current ranking will change next week ;-) :
        /Marcin Starnacki/ (23 reviews), Marco (22), /Yonathan
        Weldegebriel/ (15), Efrem (13). If you want to learn something
        new, there are still 20+ free tutorials waiting for your attention.

        [2] http://wiki.netbeans.org/NetBeansTutorialsForCommunityReview

      * /José Galaviz/ improved nicely his test specification for
        _Groovy/Grails support_ [3]
        <http://wiki.netbeans.org/TS_73_GroovyGrails_Sanity> by
        incorporating feedback from his virtual colleagues. Thanks José!

        [3] http://wiki.netbeans.org/TS_73_GroovyGrails_Sanity

      * When translating your forms be careful to have _property files_
        named correctly otherwise your bundles will not be recognized by
        GUI Builder. Besides, /Mark Wilmoth/ warned that moving i18n-ed
        form sometimes ignores bundles (#222568

      * /Thomas Kruse/ complained that _NetBeans felt sluggish_ in his
        environment (#221862
        <http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=221862>) and
        attached several profiling snapshots confirming his
        disappointment. If you also need _big screens_ a workaround is
        to use non-GTK look & feel or JDK 6. Unfortunately, we can
        hardly do anything about it ourselves. :-(

      * Manikantan suggested that the Java _hint for creating a new
        class_ should be _configurable_ (#222748
        <http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222748>) with
        regards to desired project, package and access. You can second
        this idea by your vote too.

      * /Javier Ortiz/ couldn't start his IDE due to some _module
        loading problems_ however nobody else confirmed this. The good
        news is that _publishing development builds_ has been _resumed_
        on weekend.

    *3. Bug hunting*

      * Already three participants reported a _broken import of 7.2
        settings into 7.3_ (#222499
        <http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222499>): /Gontran
        Baerts/, /Medea Gugushvili/ and /Junming Guan/. We cannot
        unfortunately reproduce the java.io.FileNotFoundException so any
        help with finding the problematic procedure is much appreciated!

      * Hermien discovered that automatic _downloading of NetBeans
        platform via Ant stopped to work_ in 7.3 (#222711
        <http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222711>). This
        regression needs more investigation.

      * Paolo changed his mind when deleting an Oracle Thin _DB driver_
        in Services view but NetBeans ignored his "No" answer and
        _deleted_ the node anyway (#222524
        <http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222524>). We fix
        such serious and *reproducible* bugs with a speed of light. :-)

      * One day /Anders Kobberup/'s _Editor deadlocked_ but when this
        happened again Anders didn't hesitate and correctly took a
        thread dump and filed it (#222651
        <http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222651>). It's
        true that at that time the bug was already fixed but Anders
        couldn't verify it due to broken publishing of builds.

      * /Lehel Sipos/ noticed that Add from * _buttons in the Palette
        Manager_ act like a broken record (#222614
        <http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222614>). Users
        have only one choice per IDE session to push the right button.
        We are looking into this to have a fix ready for 7.3.

      * /Xavier Figueroa/ wanted to save some time by quickly
        _generating getters_ in his newly created class but NetBeans
        delayed him by throwing java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException
        instead (#222631
        <http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222631>). Thanks
        to Xavier's report we all can now use the feature without any
        doubt. :-)

      * /Kit McCormick/ _couldn't deploy his web application_ into
        Tomcat 7 due to a java.lang.NullPointerException (#222550
        <http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=222550>). We fixed
        this simply by updating nashorn.jar library. :-)

      * Best bug reporter of the previous week was /Benno Markiewicz/
        with *6* reported bugs mainly against the Java Editor even
        including 2 patches!

      * 4 high priority bugs were filed last week and one of them was fixed.

    *4. Statistics*

    Bugs submitted:     839
    Open bugs:  209
    E-mails:    1134

    Best regards,
