Clever Code Completion for try/catch

Hi all, today we would like to introduce a new little feature which improves a code completion for try/catch block matching.

And what is the difference? In NetBeans 7.0.1 there are all classes suggested in a catch block matching. As you can see in the picture, it's not comfortable.

But now, in development version of NetBeans, only classes which are inherited from an \Exception class are suggested! It's pretty cool, isn't it? It was quite annoying to skip useless classes by hand.

That's all for today and as usual, please test it and if you find something strange, don't hesitate to file a new issue (component php, subcomponent Editor). Thanks.

    I'd love to see the same functionality with `throw` clauses!
