1. Using the keyboard, select a Java file in Projects tab (that is not already open in the editor).
2. Hit ENTER

It's not clear whether the new behavior is by-design or a regression. I believe the behavior changed sometime during the past 2 weeks.
It was reintroduce in previous dev builds, but it should be fixed.
It works for me
