some of the annotations are already supported: e.g. support for component-scan and corresponding annotations is supported since version 2.0.1. Furthermore we do support the @Required annotation.
But I guess you are referring to the @Autowired and @Qualifier annotations that have been added to 2.5. There are plans to support autowiring and as such the @Autowired annotation in the Beans Graph to visualize bean dependencies.
There is some brainstorming going on on how Spring IDE could leverage the stereotype annotations (@Service, @Controller ....) to classify your beans. E.g. layering the Beans Graph according to the stereotype information would be one option.
Is there anything you are particular interested in? Feel free to open specific issues in Spring IDE's JIRA.
