In what way? Syntax highlighting has been in for a while. And
auto-completion was added recently, available in the nightly version.
Or something more?

Not sure if this helps, but one trick that many might not know about
is if you click menu "Design" -> "Display AST..." it will open a
separate window with a consistently formatted version of your scad
file, created by parsing the script and reconstructing the text from
the Abstract Syntax Tree.
It isn't exactly intended for "pretty-printing", and so has a few
quirks lke reordering the overall layout as: functions definitions
first, then modules definitions, then variable declarations and module
Also it will strip comments that aren't part of customizer parameters.
Besides those things the output should be functionally equivalent, and
I have found it useful on occasion to quickly make nice indented,
legible output from some spaghetti code.
