Cool new things in IDEA

hi all...

just been using 2072 and having fun finding many new feature refinements (These might not all be new in 2072... but i just noticed them):

-like the ability to turn the Inspect(F8) window into a code snip interpreter...very cool! I wish I could launch the interpreter without being in a debug session.

-Renaming an interface now will try to rename Implementation classes if name of interface is in the impl name(MyInterface and MyInterfaceImpl), variables and getter/setters.... used it very effectively today.

anyone else noticed some cool refinements?

I love the new ability to navigate by camel humps in the goto dialogs...
that's gotta be the new feature that I've used most so far.

Anyone know how to enable "search in libraries" by default?

It's still case insensitive if you're typing just lowercase letters. It
gets sensitive only if you type uppercase letters, when it starts looking
for camel humps.

Fixed actually.Unless you're typing capital letters only like NPE input is case insensitive.

Just adding that for the first time today one of my project got to the point
where I needed a real build file. I used Generate Ant Script and WHAP
almost instantaneous and it was accurate and it saved me HOURS of writing
scripts. This feature smokes...

It did get me thinking about the possibility of generating a project from
ant file... I wonder how doable that would be to help with open source
projects project setup in idea... But I'll just enjoy this feature for
now... Nice implementation for sure.

Supposedly one of the competitors (JDeveloper? CodeGuide?) is trying to generate project from Ant. Given just how flexible Ant is in terms of setup I'm not sure how good the results are, but that's the claim. Don't see the need myself, though.

That's NetBeans, and if I understood their feature correctly, it won't
just load any existing build script and generate a project from that. If I
understood it correctly, it will generate and use an ant build file for
the project -- but no guarantees about existing build files.

My favorite cool new thing is that the Quick Javadoc window for a class shows you which module or library the class is from. It's not that useful for me so far, but it's a good addition because it's good to know where things are, in general.
