I guess that doesn't work because the auto-completion has not been
adapted from 4.6 to 5.0. IMO we should fix this, but it'd be great to
get a few more +1-s and helping hands, otherwise there is a risk of it
getting deprecated which would be a big loss.

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.

Do you mean less structured and less appealing? Could you please file
a redmine issue about GMX_NO_CREDITS and whatever else you;d like to
