[NB65] Kick out Beta. Back to trunk?

The NetBeans 6.5 Beta build was published. The build should be more stable then a daily build. The most annoying issues has been fixed.

However it is still Beta release therefore don't be surprised that an exception appears when you are using the IDE. Actually this is the purpose of the beta. Let us know about the exception. It should be easy with Exception Reporter. When the exception appears click "Review and Report Problem" and the IDE will do the rest for you. A comment that will help us to reproduce the exception is highly recommended.

There is lot of new features in this Beta. Full list of the New&Noteworthy. You might be surprised by following changes
How you can improve the NetBeans IDE quality for the final release that is planned after summer? Report bugs, let us know at mailing lists, vote for issues and fill up Satisfaction Survey for Beta .

For those that noticed the name of the post. Yes, we (QA) are returning back to trunk builds to report and verify another bugs. Beta is yours. Enjoy it.

Testing Beta of NetBeans 6.5


Beta of NetBeans 6.5 is coming next week. We are quite busy with testing of the builds, verifying the issues etc. As usually most of the users will try this beta build rather then a Release candidate (RC). However the quality of the Betas is a beta quality. All the NetBeans' team tries to keep the quality as high as possible but it is not possible to fix all the issues. However there will be enough time to fix them later.


If you are NetBeans fans then this is time to participate. We need to know about your problems. Then we can solve them. Yes, we are testing it like crazy however I'm senior QA engineer therefore I know that we can not cover/simulate/reproduce all the scenarios that the users can come up.
Please, click "Review and Report Problem" if an exception will appear to you. It is simple and easy. You can post it as a guest.
There will be also a Beta Satisfaction Survey that will appear after 5 days from the 1st start of IDE. Don't hesitate to fill it. In this way you can let us know about the problematic parts of the IDE. All the feedback help us to focus the power of the teams.

Do you wanna know more?
