The new 3281 has a new feature inspired by a request of mine. The "sort by type" option in the project view was born here:
This is a nice feeling. That being said, I'm somewhat disappointed by the lack of communication between the IDEA developers and the community, even when they're doing something that was originally suggested by a community member. There wasn't a single comment by a JetBrains developer before the issue was marked as resolved.
The end result is, the feature was implemented (good thing) but in a not so great way (bad thing). While I'm sure that future builds will probably include enhancements to this feature, it would be way easier and more enjoyable, for us EAP members and for JetBrains developers, if there was a little more communication before the feature was actually implemented.
I would expect at least one post from a developer asking and/or stating opinions on minor facets of the feature being implemented, like the preferred sort order and the icons used for the different types. This used to happen before, and I really miss this kind of participation :(
