Description mdamone 2007-06-01 09:28:26 UTC
It would be nice if hovering over an item in the Navigator view would show the
modifiers and type for that item.  This would help new users to understand what
each icon means.  So hovering over a public constructor would show "public
Constructor", hovering over an abstract protected method would show "Protected
abstract Method", hovering over a private constant would show "private static
final Field", etc...  Exact wording and capitalization could differ.

Reassigning to "objectbrowser".
