JSF Annotations Support

    JSF annotations are now supported; all features available for a JSF artifact configured in a faces-config file are now also available for annotated artifacts (features include EL content-assist, validation, and hyperlinking to annotated class). The following annotations are supported: @ManagedBean, @ReferencedBean, @FacesConverter, @FacesValidator, @FacesComponent, @FacesRenderer, plus all @*Scoped annotations, including @CustomScoped.

Implicit Navigation Support

    Implicit navigation is now supported. It is no longer necessary to configure navigation rules and cases explicitly (although this is still fully supported) to be able to use such features as content-assist.
