In Everett we made a small change to Intellisense to lessen the code you had to type. Often you will new up a class and write something like:

Foo x = new Foo();

In VS7 you had to type out the whole thing. In Everett we had Intellisense pop up after the new, to autocomplete the class name. This is one of those small features which just makes Everett (to me) so much more enjoyable to use.

As a side note, once we did this, one of the first bugs we saw was that if we declared x to be of type Foo higher up in the file, and then later on declared “x = new“, we didnt autocomplete. I am deeply appreciative of our QA team :-)
