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.
