NetBeans NetCAT 8.0

I think that some people thought I was harsh in my entry on NetBeans vs. IntellJ IDEA. As I wrote I actually did a lot work in getting to know the IDEs, especially NetBeans where I joined the NetCAT.

Yesterday I got a mail from NetBeans notifying me that some of the bugs I filed were indeed solved in the 8.0 final release. I especially like that 241120 was fixed as it was quite annoying in refactoring. Good job.
