The NetBeans IDE 7.1 Community Acceptance Testing program (NetCAT) turned out well, again. According to the recently published results from a satisfaction survey all of the 31 respondents liked the program. Is it really possible? :)
In addition to that, there was nobody with a negative opinion about bug fixing, cooperation with NetBeans developers, or program coordination.
We are also happy to see that the success of NetCAT Tribes was repeated in NetCAT 7.1 because the help of tribes with the certification of not covered features is one of the most important improvements since the beginning of the NetCAT program.
It seems that the main communication channel (the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list) still remains ideal for the majority of participants and the traffic was acceptable.
Beside that, several interesting ideas for improvement were suggested. We've taken this feedback seriously and decided to implement some recurring suggestions.

If you want to take a look at how we cooperate with the community in the NetBeans project, join the NetCAT 7.2 program in early April!
