Most of the editor improvements look like things that have been in IDEA for ages. Maybe I'll try it again some day, because of things like the free profiler and GUI editor, but I doubt I will use it as my primary code editor.
- Is it true that NB did not have Local History before this release? I can't imagine how I would survive without it anymore.
- Is it possible to have autosaving and automatic closing of tabs in NB? I've already quite well managed to unlearn the redundant habbit of pressing Ctrl+S and closing editor windows, so that if I move to another editor, these usability problems (having to manage saving and editor windows manually) hit me immediately.
- Have NB's refactoring capabilites improved? The last time I tried NB (maybe 5.0 or 5.5), they were far too limited.
