The GUI Editor window can helpfully autocomplete function names.  However, it doesn't seem to recognize when new functions are added, say when a package is loaded.

The interpreter, however, does recognize new functions.

As an example, in the Command Window do

pkg load statistics
logncdf   logninv   lognpdf   lognrnd   lognstat

But in the Editor Window, typing "log" shows autocompletes from the core like "log", "log10", "log1p", but typing "logn" shows nothing.
