Description Alexander Simon 2016-11-17 12:47:16 UTC
Extend code parser/highlighter to recognize not only typedefs, but all classes/struct/enums as user types. Just like VisualStudio2015 do. Also eclipe acts like this, making the code look very nice. vector<char*>::iterator looks more friendly :) In fact, I'm using typedefs only to improve code syntax in NB, which is basically wrong technique and should be avoided.

Last proposal is to add highlighting enumerators - new category in highlighter. This is also becoming more common in another IDE's.
