Favorite New Feature in JBuilder 2005

...or JBuilder 11, XI, or whatever you think it should be called.

Syntax highlighting now has the ability to display class member variables in a different color. I know other IDEs have had this feature for some time, but I am glad JBuilder has it.

Most unfavorite feature: changes made the Swing designer. They took what used to be A Very Good Thing and made it slower and changed the interface around. Give me back the old Swing designer.
