Build All and Active Project

There is another significant change (which I don't like really) in the way the project manager behaves when building multiple projects. What used to happen when doing a Build All was that each project would become the active project in turn and you could use this visual clue to see the progress of a long compilation. Now you get information about each project while it compiles, but no overall view.

Another difference, and possibly the reason for this change, is that at the end of the multi-project compilation the current project doesn't change. If you debug a project, do a rebuild all, and than start debugging again you'll be working on the same project, regardless of their sequence. This is actually quite nice, but I wish the two effects (display the current project being compiled, plus restoring the one you were working on at the end of the compilation) could be combined, rather than adding one at the expense of the other.
