The plugin JUnit 4 is requested in implementation version 201411181905

I'm trying to install CppGnuAutoTools - plugin but when a click on "install" button a window is shown with the fallowing message

"The plugin JUnit 4 is requested in implementation version 201411181905"

My NetBeans version is 8.0.2 and according to the plug-in manager Junit is activated

Version: 1.1 Source: Certified Plugins
Plugin Description
Includes the JUnit unit testing library and corresponding library definitions. 3.x and 4.x versions are both included

What is going on ?
Why I can't install CppGnuAutoTools plg-in ?

Thanks in advance
