During this week, a major milestone was achieved — we moved the 1st NetBeans code donation from Oracle to Apache Incubator Git, mirrored on GitHub:
The 1st code donation consists of the NetBeans Platform and the Java SE tools (i.e., standard Java, including Swing and JavaFX), which includes tools for JShell and Jigsaw.
See the end of this page for the process and the current state:
Soon we’ll start moving the various mailing lists and the website and so on to Apache as well.
Initially, we’ll only have two mailing lists — one for all users of NetBeans, i.e., email@example.com and all other user mailing lists:
And we will have one mailing list for those developing NetBeans itself:
You’re welcome to already move over to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list:
Also be aware of all the NetBeans questions being asked on Twitter, Facebook, and, for example, Stack Overflow:
Responses and questions welcome!
