Today marks the start of test cycle of JBoss Tools 4.2.0.Beta3.
You can install the first testing build into your Eclipse Luna from this update site:
If you're curious about what is new in JBoss Tools 4.2, you can check here:
Be informed that this page does not contain all of Beta3 yet - we will let you know when we have details for it.
You can start testing right away! If you find any bug, be sure to report it at https://issues.jboss.org/ . We're looking forward to your feedback.
A few new builds called respin-a/b/... can be expected during this test cycle. You will be informed through this mailing list. You can see the schedule at http://tools.jboss.org/cat/ .
This is our first time doing this thus do tell if you are in doubt on how/what to try out or
simply just need a pointer - we will gladly help!
It's been a week since I posted the announcement about JBoss Tools CAT
and I can see we already got a handful of people signing up - over the
next weeks/months I hope there will be more coming in to join the fun.
I wanted to give you a very warm welcome and I was hoping each of you
might wanted to introduce yourself.
I can start with myself to kick things of:
I'm Max Rydahl Andersen, the technical lead of JBoss Tools and Developer
If you want to see how I look Arun Gupta actually just recorded a video
of me remotely while I was
in US last week:
I've worked at Red Hat for close to 10 years now on various tech in
JBoss middleware and their related tools.
I primarily work with Eclipse for my java projects and use Emacs for
one-off edits, but I do play and use
other IDE's for various languages and platforms to compare with what is
My current main personal interest in the tools are related around HTML5,
but I of course also try out all the other tools in context of my job -
but those are the ones I tend to also use
outside my work with tools.
My reason to help get JBoss Tools CAT of the ground is that I know we
have many users, but we rarely hear back concrete
input unless something is *really* blocking them for progress. With
JBoss Tools CAT I hope to be able to get more broad
feedback and give all interested users a place to speak up and reach out
to the JBoss Tools team more directly.
That was a lot about me, now back to you ? You can keep it short - just
name and what feature in the tools you like the best
(and maybe which you hate the most ?).
