Yes, I think of such things as automatic backup, or multiple-level
undo and redo.
I would like to see more powerful organization of palettes and
notebooks. Organization of palettes may be look like the ribbon
interface in MS Office 2007. Organization of notebooks may be look
like tabs in Google Chrome or Firefox. Notebooks and palettes will be
able to dock and undock. The code editor will be able to highlight
brackets. The highlighting looks like in Workbench 2. The selection of
code works like the selection for normal text without expansion. The
expansion appears when I try deselect the selection. The 'complete
selection' works like in such manner:
1) I type something for example 'ListL' .
2) I press Ctrl+K  (complete selection).
3) I continue type and 'complete selection list' interactive suggests
an end of word.
The powerful tooltip appears when I type the function arguments and
powerful 'complete selection list' appears for function arguments.
