Java.net Last-Completed and Current Polls: Java 8 and NetBeans 7.3
In the last-completed Java.net poll, the community indicated that it overwhelmingly anticipates that Java 8 will be released this September. Meanwhile, our current poll, which has less than a week to go, asks for your view of the recently-released NetBeans Version 7.3.
A total of 1178 votes were cast in the Java 8 poll. The exact question and results were:
Will Java 8 be released in September 2013 (as is currently scheduled)?
83% (981 votes) - Yes 5% (54 votes) - Probably 4% (49 votes) - Probably not 3% (31 votes) - No 5% (63 votes) - 63
So, as I said, the sentiment is pretty overwhelmingly in the direction of Java 8 being released in September. The usual caveat (that this isn't a scientific poll) applies, of course. Still, a result like this leaves not much to write about with respect to post-poll analysis!
New poll: NetBeans Version 7.3
Our current poll asks NetBeans 7.3 has been called "the most interesting release ever"; what's your view?. Voting will be open until Friday, March 22.
