Yes, I use this feature and missing it would be a great loss to my workflow. However, I only use it in bash. Is the auto-completion planned to work for files only, or also for the tools (e.g.: gmx gro<tab> auto-completes to gmx grompp). I noticed this doesn't work in the beta-version either.

On a slightly related issue: the enviroment variable "GMX_NO_CREDITS" doesn't work anymore in gmx5b. That made my work in the terminal a lot easier too (Not that I think you guys don't deserve the credits!). Is that planned to be reimplemented? I also find the template/layout of the "credits-section" less structured and appealing than in the old version.
