D2006: Add New menu item in Project Manager context menu

One of the many new features in Delphi 2006 (and perhaps lesser known) is the appearance of an Add New menu item in the Project Manager context menu.

When selected in a Win32 application you get a submenu that allows you to add either a New Form or a New Unit to the project. A very nice little shortcut for adding new units and forms to projects.

I like this new feature a lot personally.

Unfortunately it does have a couple of issues.
  1. For .NET applications and packages it only displays the Other and Customize menu items.
  2. The Customize menu item doesn't allow you to actually Customize the Add New menu but is a link to customizing the File File submenu.

Don't fear. I have QC'd both items already although they aren't visible yet.
