Since the move to apache the included Netbeans plugin sources (“Update Centers) seriously lost it’s appeal.

To have access to the most basic needs, head to Tools->Plugins->Settings and Add:

  • enabling “Netbeans 8.2 Plugin Portal” yields 20 additional plugins
  • adding

    gets you 171 (26 shared with “Plugin Portal)

  • adding

    will add 170 (12 shared with “Plugin Portal”, 69 shared with the 8.2 above)

In total 271, much better. Whether all of them are useful or even work is another question entirely. “Quick Opener” did, so I’m happy for now.

Btw, did anyone else notice that the windows executable properties have still version 9 listed?
