Exporting a netbeans project as archive

There is a Netbeans Plugin named "Export as Archive".

You get it via the PluginManager from the update site.

After the plugin is installed, you do not find any hint how to export a
project as archive.

You have to go to the Files-Panel and not to Projects. Select a directory
and you have the option to export as zip archive:

As you see, you can also set a keyboard short cut in
Tools->options->Keymaps for "Export as archive".
