I upgraded to 2.3.0 on Gentoo (by hacking the 2.2.6 ebuild) in order to have a look at the new address completion widget, but I don't see anything different than before. (I.e., the expansion of nicknames is done by means of a drop-down menu, and you have to reach for the mouse to actually pick one.)

I checked the "About" menu item to make sure I'm actually running 2.3.0, and I am. What am I missing?

Well...the new widget was implemented in the 2.2.6 source tree, conditionally on Gtk-2.4 being installed. You probably were already using it. The previous widget was a hacked GtkEntry that offered the completions inline.

But in both 2.2.6 and 2.3.0 you shouldn't need to reach for your mouse! Cursor-down gets you into the list of completions, and Enter selects the highlighted one.
