It doesn't highlight the matching parantheses while typing, but it still does while scrolling over it with the cursor with the arrow keys. This is quite inconvenient since I have to go back after each bracket if I want to know which one's the matching bracket.

Hi Sascha,

sorry, we lost that functionality while re-factoring the entire editor code. I've just fixed it.

Thanks a lot the hint!
