  1. Mark says:

    The Mac JRE7 builds do not use subpixel antialiasing, which looks terrible. Until Oracle fixes this I hope you’ll keep the JRE6 builds.

    • Christopher says:

      The most recent Oracle JRE 7 builds DO support HiDPI rendering in Swing. I’ve got a MacBook Pro Retina and the problem which Mark refers to is fixed (I haven’t tried the IntelliJ 13 RC however, so I’m assuming the correct build is used).

      • Mark says:

        My issue was specifically with the IntelliJ 13 RC2 bundled build; I just assumed it was a problem with Oracle’s JRE. It could just as well be some setting that JetBrains needs to enable to get subpixel antialiasing.

        Of course, using Retina/HiDPI the lack of subpixel antialiasing is be a lot less noticeable.

    IBM JDK support is still broken – http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-116404
    Not especially inspiring for a release candidate.

  4. Sergei Ivanov says:

    It is a shame that two long-standing bugs that cause me the most grief have not been addressed in this release either.

    I love IDEA 13, it improved in many areas over version 12, but some issues have remained on the backlog for way too long.
