I've seen this in Aptana, and I thought this would be a cool addition to display the current gut branch name next to "Sources Files" or even the project name in the Project browser.

I found this quite useful in Aptana, and it somehow encourages me to use the branching system in git.

branch name nex to a project name

Do you mean this? A branch name is already displayed next to a project name. Just ensure that versioning annotations are enabled (View -> Show Versioning Labels)

That's exactly it. This enhancement request can be closed (didn't see that option, was looking in the preferences of the versionning systems)

The best solution is to enable scm branch info in the project name. Here's the discussion: How to display VCS path besides project name in NetBeans - blog/netbeans-examples/bugs/how-to-project-window-case-study
