Viewing the Effective POM

I discovered another cool feature in the latest development builds of the NetBeans IDE. When viewing a pom.xml file in any Maven-based project, you can now see the effective pom. This means that the configuration inherited from one or more parent pom.xml files is shown in this view too. Very useful indeed!
