The new release provides improved navigation. The history feature lets users browse though the files and buffer locations they’ve been editing recently with just forward and back buttons and a drop list in the toolbar. Find Highlighting enables visual markers for find/search matches, independent of the syntax coloring information. Hyperlinks adds new code intelligence: Ctrl+mouse-hover will hyperlink interesting regions in the text–more than just “Go to Definition” links. And a new “fast open” dialog eases opening the files within a current working directory, files within the current project, recently opened/closed files as well as switching to a currently opened file.
