NetBeans recently became an Apache project. Some people had been afraid that NetBeans ends up like OpenOffice, whilst others appreciated that step enthusiastic. I don’t know what future brings, but the NetBeans community is still vibrant. And the NetBeans Dream Team just incorporated seven new members.

The NetBeans Dream Team consists of people who are exceeding active in the community and/or contribute a lot to the project. The new members are (twitter name in parenthesizes):

  • Attila Kelemen
  • Bruno Flávio (@brunoflavio_com)
  • Emmanuel Hugonnet (@ehsavoie)
  • Gaurav Gupta (@jGauravGupta)
  • Leonardo Zanivan (@leonardopanga)
  • Michael Simons (@rotnroll666)
  • Ryan Cuprak (@rcuprak)

A warm welcome to all of the new members!

You’ll get the full list of all current members on the NetBeans wiki [1]. Geertjan Wielenga (project liaison) introduces the new members in his article on jaxenter [2].
