New NetBeans.org Back-End
By seapegasus on Nov 12, 2009
Latest news from the netbeans.org migration: Since Wednesday, the Plugin Portal is now connected to use the same Single-Sign On as the rest of netbeans.org! Thanks to the migration team for setting this up. The wiki, bugzilla, mailing list subscriptions, and the pluginportal all use the same account now.
And finally we also have spiffy user profile pages (log on and click Edit Profile) where you can for instance enter social networking data and search for other developers by interest to discuss a question or to recruit new team members for your project. If you are especially interested in one of the supported technologies, click "bookmark project" on the projects page to become an observer, and join one of the project mailing lists.
It can still happen that you come across broken links here and there - we are tracking them down, thanks for your reports! Some things we're working on: Some attachments links pointing to the wiki and the previous download section no longer work, we are still uploading them. NetBeans.tv is moving to channelsun (this means embedded and direct links to videos that were hosted there don't work), and we are updating pages where we embedded videos -- for example the netbeans platform and the teach yourself JavaFX screencast series, and others.
Some projects were renamed for clearity, for instance nbi.netbeans.org is now called installer.netbeans.org, and translatedfiles is now called nblocalization.netbeans.org. Others were moved, for example the portal pack has moved to contrib.netbeans.org. This means its sources can be found in main/contrib/ and the plugin itself on the update center (in the IDE's Tools menu) and the web page here.
If you want to know more, there is a help link at the top right of your profile that points to our help set.
