Something changed in the latest version (145.970). The auto complete no longer includes the parameter signatures, and it attempts to shove any variable into the auto complete, even without a leading $.
In this example below: strpos <ENTER> gives this. This is not useful since it does not list what the parameter should be. It should only offer a variable if $ is typed. Even <CTRL> <P> does not bring up the signatures. One has to terminate the auto complete then re click the param to show the signature.
When using constructors, it becomes even less useful. The method signature is not present at any point, and the auto complete just pulls in the local variables.
Is there any way to get the previous version auto complete functionality back?
