Semantic highlighting has never been enabled by default, because it was slow and buggy. Since it was causing serious problems for people who enabled it, we temporarily removed it.

We are working on a new type resolver that will make semantic highlighting much more performant and reliable. We will then enable it by default.
Comment 2 Mike Krüger 2011-10-06 01:00:46 UTC
That feature got disabled in 2.8 because of internal problems caused by incompatible ast representations. 

But semantic highlighting in 2.8 has no checkbox for semantic highlighting anymore - that's why I close that one.

Somantic highlighting will be back in the next major release.
