Dependency Search Hint for Ant-Based NetBeans Platform Applications

In addition to the handy new Export Package menu item mentioned yesterday, from NetBeans Platform 7.4 onwards you can now directly access the Module Dependency dialog, via a hint in the Java Editor

That's always been available for Maven-based NetBeans Platform application, but thanks to Benno Markiewicz this is now also available for plain old Ant projects:

I believe that enhancements such as this one, rather than large features, i.e., small and helpful new hints and refactorings, is what makes the difference between a good and great IDE. Hope Benno and others will continue this great trend!
