Many New Features for NetBeans Projects in NetBeans IDE 7.4

While trying out the Eclipse formatter plugin in a build of NetBeans IDE 7.4, where it works fine as well, I saw several other new tabs in the Project Properties dialog.

Compare the screenshots below, the first is the Project Properties dialog for Maven Java EE projects in NetBeans IDE 7.4, while the second is for the current release, NetBeans IDE 7.3.1:


In both cases, the Eclipse formatter plugin is installed, but all the rest of the categories above are available by default, for Java EE Maven projects, as well as for several other types of projects in NetBeans IDE 7.4. That means new support for license headers, JavaScript files, CSS processors, as well as project-level Java hints.
