goals, and tasks.
For each destination choose from context-sensitive actions such as go, open, run, and debug.

The navigation popup now includes links to various project and module settings,
along with Android resource directories, the Maven project tree, and Maven POM files (if they exist in

You can now swivel between the source editor, the project view, and the Gradle view. A custom popup
displays common destinations and user configured tasks and groups. Commands are added to various context menus in
the Project Tree, Gradle Tree, and Editor Window.
