Please consider adding the ability to add entries to the automatically created manifest file for javafx projects.
A simple solution like what was done for the javafx params and arguments would be great. This would allow something like the following added to the project.properties file to add entries into the manifest:
Reason for request:
I am creating javafx library jar files that will be dynamically loaded a standalone javafx app (ie: no jnlp or web). I would like the ability to read the manifest to get information about the jar that I may dynamically load. I realize there are other ways to skin this cat but the manifest seems the easyiest to me (the JarFile class already does the heavy lifting).

Sounds reasonable. Added it to preliminary plan for next release...
changes in parameter support in preparation for custom manifest entries
fixed in jetmain
new UI available in Project Properties -> Packaging
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201302252300* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
