NetBeans editor tips and enhancements

Using NetBeans 4.1 beta:

– You can find/replace in selected text only.

– You can now search using regular expressions.

– The search history is now shared between all searches (inside code, across files)

– Pressing the Ctrl key and hovering over an identifier is a new (shorter) way to navigate to its declaration.

– Code completion works with annotations, both standard and custom.

Update: more improvements here.
