Means in the cvs. I am wondering if you are refering to the last 0.1.7
release. In the cvs, lots of new things have arrived.

The calltips are fully operational in my system. Although calltips shown
are only for system calls and other gtk/gnome libraries. For the custom
functions, it doesn't show calltip. Work is going on to accomplish this.

Session management is fully working in the cvs. Luca added the feature
to anjuta sometime back. If you have a project open and lots of files
open, and you exit, next time it brings you the same spot, including to
the correct line numbers. It also saves many other parameters such as
search histories etc. Incidently, it only works for projects.

Multiple file import/open is also possible now in cvs. You just have to
press ctrl, before you select the files in the select dialog and it
enters into multiple select mode. I think there should be a flag on the
file selection dialog box, which tells in which mode it is.

I don't know how VC autocomplete works, but the autocomplete in anjuta
is more to do with word completion rather than any other.
