That still leaves lots of room for changes and improvements.
Maybe, but I also lost faith that this call for improvements in 1.0 will lead to anything concerning the IDE.
For me (and from what I read in other posts quite a few other people as well ) this is the most annoying part of the whole Arduino-Thingy.
The hardware, core/libraries, basic idea ,documentation , I have a lot of respect for this ...
... but when it comes to the IDE :'(
Its not fun to work with, its buggy, its the part of the project in bad need of improvements.
And since I expected the answer...
In the particular details of text editing and window management (as shared by Processing), you're right that I'd rather defer to Processing.
...I didn't feel like it was worth posting anything into this part of the forum.
No matter how many shiny new chrome-fittings Arduino 1.0 will have under the hood, People will still point with fingers at us and say Hey look, the Arduinos are still driving around with their rusty old Processing-GuiMobile ;D
A question that needs to be investigated : Is this a German thing?
