I do not know does this bug (http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=225989) affect to final 7.3 release and i cannot check it right now, but in developer build i cannot easy work with my unit tests.
I filled it with P2 priority, but i think ic can be increased to P1.

*Subject:* [73cat] [news] Status Report #18*1. Overall summary*
Hello NetCAT team,
I hope you will find this last status report informative.
activity of the previous two weeks was *~156 BETs* which was generated
Can you believe it's already 5 months since NetCAT 7.3 started? =-O Yes,
after NetCAT 7.0 this will be the 2nd longest NetCAT program in the
history. In spite of that there are still enough people who want to make
sure that 7.3 version is well tested till its final release. The average*2. Important stuff*
by 25 bug reporters, 26 e-mailer writers and 1 tutorial reviewer.
Although such decrease in activity was expected, this NetCAT program has
been clearly more productive in terms of bugs income than what we are
used to which is confirmed by the attached charts. Great job folks!
Release Candidate 2 is out and FCS build is being certified full steam.
Community Acceptance survey has been closed and results published.
Satisfaction survey about NetCAT program itself has launched. There were
discussions about not working Save action, some problems with API
Support functionality or missing NetBeans item in KDE menu. More details
* First of all thanks to 40 NetCAT participants who provided feedback
in the _Community Acceptance survey_. In total we have got 110<http://qa.netbeans.org/processes/cat/73/ca_results.html> and we are
responses. The results were published yesterday * We are glad that overall _satisfaction with NetBeans IDE 7.3

as FCS! :-) Only few respondents suggested to fix a handful of bugs
but none of these issues was pointed out by 10% of respondents or more.
quality_ is greater than with NetBeans IDE 7.2! :-) On the other* As you should know, we are working on the final step which is
hand, it seems that people recognized our focus on performance in
7.2 more than what was done for 7.3. Another great highlight is that
satisfaction with Java Editor increased by 11%. Quality of the brand
new Client-Side Web Development features is satisfactory for 94%.
Finally, usage and quality of JavaFX support remains similar if
compared to 7.2 results.

Fantastic job Marcin! There are only few more remaining but these
are hard nuts like 9-parts DB&PHP tutorial or introduction to

to ping me ASAP!
