Introduction

Supplies a project type which, like freeform projects, is intended for use on preexisting development projects using Ant build scripts. Unlike freeform projects, there is no mandatory initial setup. The root directory can be opened immediately. Source roots and their classpaths are autodetected merely by doing a build. Wiki

Use the 7.3 version for now

@jopet as far as I know there have been no non-metadata changes since 7.3 in this plugin, so you should be able to use the 7.3 download as is. Based on the commit a97d46149b25 I suspect the Profiler integration would not load in dev builds; not sure about in 8.0; but the other modules should still work. Or you can download http://deadlock.netbeans.org/view/All/job/release801-au/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/nbbuild/nbms/extra/org-netbeans-modules-autoproject-*.nbm to be sure of getting builds done against 8.0.

Since I have moved on from NB development and never use Ant for anything any more, I do not have the time to keep resubmitting this for reverification every time a new NB release is made. I agree it should be bundled in the NB distribution to begin with. Try making this argument directly to people still working on NB.

Please make this available for NB 8.x

Probably the most useful Java plugin that is, alas, not distributed with Netbeans by default. At this time it is unfortunately not available in the Plugin download manager for NB 8.x and on this page it does not show up for NB 8.x either.
