Tested with #701, #815, #816.
0.6 (#701, #816) - May 23, 2003
RFE The action should be mapped by default to Alt-A.
RFE Support #816.
RFE Please support separate configurable item limit (historyLimit).
historyLimit. It's the number of recent files retained in the list even if their editors were closed. By default set to 1 (the behavior as before with the exception for 0 or 1 open files; 0 files - Alt-A will open the file you recently closed; 1 file - you'll see the list with 1 file). If you want the old functionality set historyLimit to 0. If you set it to, say, 15, you'll have the list close to what you have in Ctrl-E.
How to change historyLimit. Install plugin. Go to $IDEA_CONFIG_DIR/options/other.xml. Find TabSwitchApplicationComponent component element (you may need to restart IDEA). Change the historyLimit option.
