Missing plugins for your NetBeans nightly builds?

Do you use a Nightly-/Dev-Build of NetBeans or even a release candidate of 8.2 within the NetCAT-program and you are missing some of your favorite plugins?

First there is no plugin center for Dev-Builds. Also most plugins from the 8.1 plugin center are not verified for the new 8.2 build yet – including my plugins.

Nevertheless in the meantime you can still use the plugins and give the plugin authors feedback of the compatiblity to 8.2. Some plugins won’t work, because of using non-public API, but that is the point to find out!

How to do that?

At Tools|Plugins|Settings add the plugin center URL for 8.1 [1] and then at Tools|Plugins|Available Plugins click at “Check for Newest
