Hi all, this blog post is kind of related to the previous blog posts about PHP 7 support in NetBeans 8.2 (Part 1, Part 2). Today, we will tell you how you can help with testing this support and believe us, everyone of you is important for us and your help is more than welcome!
Luckily, it is very simple because there are no specific instructions! :) Simply, test (use) PHP 7 support in NetBeans if possible (yes, we know that it can be quite soon for using PHP 7 in production but still, we are developers and we love to play with a new things, right?) as well as the existing features (to ensure that nothing is broken) in NetBeans development version (it is a good idea to download a fresh build from time to time, we fix a lot of bugs every day). This would help us a lot because there are so many situations that can happen that it is not possible for us to test them all, unfortunately. Please, report all issues together with exact steps to reproduce in NetBeans Bugzilla (component php, subcomponent Editor; unfortunately, currently down for maintenance).
