well, my logic in adding components and improving SN is based on my 
needs. So I added
all the parsers (in sn-extensions) because I had to deal with those 
languages, especially the
html parser. the bug fixes camed mostly for the editor, the symbol 
browser  and the grep
functionality (the part I work with).

As Irox mentioned, if you run into the need of failed functionality take 
for you some
hours and try to add some stuff to SN. I agree, that this is not easy, 
but with our
help, you should be able to do some work in this way.

For your unluck,  I don't use xref, so there will be no improvment
on xref coming from me.

Using external editors is possible in SN, it's the question how good :-) 
you can specify for every language type an external editor (did you know

I don't work with Java. Once I get a project in java I would go and 
implement the failed
components (sounds waiting for some years, so don't really wait for this

It's possible in SN to share the same project (one of the hidden 
functionalities in SN). Just open the
project as different user. It's not real project sharing, but something 
of DB-like sharing.
