8.0 - where is "Complete Word"?

In 7.x, I frequently use "complete word", but it appears to be gone in 8.0. "Complete Word" has advantages over "cyclic expand word" - it allows camel-case expansion and presents you with a list of all the possible completions. Am I missing something or was this functionality removed?

In case you are wondering why the need comes up, I code a lot in Lua for my work. Even though Idea has no direct support for Lua, Idea still works as a decent editor for Lua (just enabling .lua as a file type and designating the reserved words for syntax highlighting).

It actually works as Basic completion now (Ctrl+Space), but you should
enter at least one prefix letter to get it.

Thanks for the quick response, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. Ctrl-Space (Basic completion) only ever comes up with the 10 or so keywords I created for the filetype (If I hit Ctrl-Space on no text). It never completes anything from the current file (whether I'm on no text or in the middle of text). In 7.x I'd type "soL" and "Complete Word" would give local file choise such as "someLocalVariable", "soundValue", etc... I can't seem to get that under 8.0 with basic Complete Word or otherwise

Yes, this is really a problem, thank you for reporting it. The fix will
be included in IDEA 8.0.2.

Is it already too late for fixes to make it into 8.0.1?

The completion s working great. Thanks again, and thanks for the quick reply to the non-bug.
