  1. Brian Oxley says:

    Does the buy now/upgrade free offer apply to commercial licenses?

  2. Haoz says:

    Does student license qualify?

  3. JP Veilleux says:

    I already have IntelliJ IDEA 11, when and how will I be able to buy/upgrade to 12?

    Thanks for the info!

  4. Michael Wills says:

    Any word on plugin support and stability for Python (not yet compatible), and Ruby (SASS throws errors last I heard but otherwise functioning)? I believe PHP is OK but I haven’t been able to really start to test v12 since the other languages I use don’t yet work.

  5. Gaston Lodieu says:

    I cannot install sbt nor scala plugin using Idea12 preview version.

  6. E. Ribeiro says:

    I’ve bought Intellij IDEA 11 in April of this year, and would like to know if I will be able to upgrade to 12 with a discount?

    Thanks.

  7. Sorin Jucovschi says:

    I have been using 12 for 3 months now for writing Java and Node.js. I like it a lot and will definitely upgrade from 11 when it comes out.
    One thing you definitely need to do is to provide better icons. I use a retina mac and the icons are blurry.

  8. Alain Penders says:

    It looks like New Project is broken in this version. It worked fine in the last EAP build, but in this one it doesn’t do anything.

  9. Foogaro says:

    Any cool price upgrade from personal license v. 11?

  10. Sorin Jucovschi says:

    Why does Darcula theme doesn’t look like on the public preview page. It just makes the editor and the console dark. Is there a switch to enable the theme all over?

  11. Joerg says:

    Hi, what Sorin says it’s true, provide better icons. I use also a retina mac.

  12. Alain Penders says:

    Update… New Project broke because of Ruby. Disabling the Ruby plugin fixed the problem.

  13. Gordon Tyler says:

    Sorin, there’s a code style theme and an appearance theme. Use both and everything should match.

  14. leif says:

    Could we expect some improvements for the gradle integration?

    When will we see first results of the jboss drools integration?

    Thanks, Leif

  15. Sorin Jucovschi says:

    Thanks Grodon for the tip.
    Darcula theme totally ROCKS! Been waiting for a dark theme for ever.
    Thanks guys!

  17. Nikolay Chashnikov says:

    n0g00d,
    this exception will be fixed in the next build, thank you for reporting. It is caused by some pre/post processing ant task in some artifact with unspecified path to build file, so you can workaround the problem by disabling that task.

  18. Anna Kozlova says:

    Gaston,
    a workaround to load plugins:
    you can open some project and you’ll be able to download the plugin.
    Sorry for the inconvenience

  19. Darren S. Eyers says:

    Nice to see upgrade, but you should do the same for Commercial too. I know you have Commercial license, then Commercial + Upgrade, but means some people are waiting for the Preview to be released as Commercial without upgrade….

  20. Alexey Danilov says:

    In this release some of Idea’s plugins is listening to port 10001 or, if it is already taken, to 10002 etc. In our projects we use these ports extensively… Any way to change this setting in Idea? ‘Been Googling around to no avail.

  21. Alan says:

    Hello all,

    programs with use
    BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
    in.readLine();

    and read from the console when run in Intellij get the string in reverse order when using
    the Preview version. This worked correctly in the 122.694 build. I’m running on a Linux system…fails with JDK7 or JDK8.

  23. Eugene Zhuravlev says:

    The exception has been fixed already.
    The workaround is to enable GUIDesigner plugin in your IDEA instance, even if you don’t use it. With the new build which contains fixes, you could disable it again.
    Thanks for reporting!
