It has been a while since previous release (http://wiki.netbeans.org/Html4Java) - actually a year and it is time to release new version with bugfixes and also include it in NetBeans 9.
The HTML/Java code is stable and there wasn't much changes:
New features in version 1.4
Both values null and undefined are treated as null. Better behavior under multi-threaded load. Integration with Truffle. Workaround for garbage collector behavior of modern JavaFX WebView implementations (JDK8 u112 and newer). JavaFX Presenter can show popup window. Development has switched to Git repository thanks to conversion by Emilian Bold.
The risk of upgrade shall be low http://bits.netbeans.org/html+java/dev/

The binaries are updated by: http://hg.netbeans.org/ergonomics/rev/9731247e58df
