New additions in green.
Entries in RED have been fixed.
Entries in BLUE are not in the plan for 3.2
So far, I have received input from the Search, Platform/JDT Text, JDT Core, JDT UI, and Debug teams. This document contains a summary of that feedback. The items are listed by component, but are otherwise in no particular order.

|see suggestions in bug 109998||Experimental (?) Keys preference page (3 votes):
|Finish the preferences clean up effort from 3.0:
|Improve the look of the filter control (preferences, other dialogs):
The fast view icon looks like a bug, as the lower right corner is missing. For all the icons on the fast view bar, it isn't obvious what they do. They should be more "inviting" to click on. Maybe some extra adornment in the icon like an arrow that points in the direction they will open. The tooltip should also show the keyboard shortcut.
New icon is being requests, no other work decided at this point
