Change file filter name to "All Files" in the second step of wizard when adding JBoss server instance (in the dialog which appears after clicking the browse button).

Add menu item to UML project explorer. Add checkbox to delete element from diagram dialog. We specifically want to allow editing of imported elements including deletion. We also need to provide a way for users to remove imported elements from their models. To differentiate between the two actions, we created a new action to allow users to remove imported elements from the importing project without removing them from the original project. A second checkbox was also added to the delete element from diagram dialog for the same reason. Note, we patterned the behavior after the favorites tab where users can delete files or simply remove them from their favorites. 116994 OK OK Beta 2 Pending
Ruby: For "Go To Declaration", if the jump target is ambiguous, pop up a dialog where the user can choose the jump target. This is almost identical to how "Go To Super Implementation" works for Java. This happens very frequently in Ruby since it has open classes, as well as when there is difficulty determining the type of the expression so it's matching all methods of the same name. There have been several issues filed around this. 119586 OK OK 6.0 6.0
Remove quick navigation sidebar from directory chooser on Windows Fix of a performance problem in JDK 6u3 109703 OK 6.0 6.0
Stronger indication of plugin source (certified/beta/community). Icons in the Source column are now colorful, their tooltip better reflects the source UC stability (certified/beta/community) and this information is repeated in the plugin's description area for maximum clarity. As a result of p-team discussion about default state of update centers in 6.0, it was decided that all update centers may be turned ON by default, but a few minor UI changes must be done in Plugin Manager. OK OK 6.0 6.0
