Syntax coloring and Java 1.5 (static imports, for example)

I discovered that IDEA seems to understand only genericity, but not static imports, the improved for statement and enums. I have this code snippet:



The editor doesn't understand the static import and underwaves it as a syntax error. Worse yet, the Alt-Enter feature to automatically import a class not yet imported messes up the import statements so badly I have to import the classes manually.

Please, is there a plan if and when to implement fully Java 1.5 syntax coloring and support? I miss this feature the most: now I have many TODO comments whereever I want to use the new Java 1.5 features but can't because it is too cumbersome with IDEA. I use IDEA build 1035.

And you fellow developer, do you miss such a feature, too?
