Happy New Year!

The CoolBeans website got a lot of hits over the holidays, especially since it was linked on Hacker News. I read HN but I didn't expect that many hits. Luckily I picked a too big instance size on Google Cloud and the server worked smoothly.

Now that Apache NetBeans 10 has also been released I get a steady stream of folks in need of the JavaEE plugins. Many also want the C/C++ plugins.

Next releases

I forgot to bundle the Oracle JS module. This is available for install at runtime and shouldn't break anything but I wish I had included it just like nb-javac.

During the 1st trimester there will be another release including the C/C++ plugins.

The GlobalSign Extended Validation process for a code signing certificate is done. The hardware token has not arrived yet but safe to say Windows releases made this year will be digitally signed. (macOS images are already signed).
