828 - It's Terrible

but I simply can't keep up with all the new features being added.

My daytime work (VB coding) is reaching a creshendo as dead-lines approach. The evenings are too sunny (and I'm too whacked and the wine too tempting) and the weekends are taken up with shopping, day-trips, school fairs and kid's parties...

So frustrating!

Yeah this is all going pretty fast for me too, don't worry it will slow down
as all the prelims get in, and then there will be a slew of builds with bug
fixes, you'll then have time to catch up. After all this IS a 3.x to 4.x
jump so we're seeing what it's like... live!

It would be nice if the "Tip o' the day" would include features that have
been recently added. That would increase peoples' knowledge of the EAP and
may result in better test coverage.

Or even better an option to only show tips for new features. I guess you would have to define what "new" is, maybe new since the last major release??

I am afraid this is too much work for us: making tips for all the new
features on the go... What would you prefer: more tips or less bugs?

I guess I'd prefer fewer bugs.

I made the mistake of suggesting what I think would be best for IDEA, not
what would be best for me. (I think the tips would be best for IDEA because
all that time and money spent on writing new features might be wasted if
nobody knows those features are there.)
