Earlier this week we’ve announced the start of IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 EAP. Among the new features available in the preview build, this one you’re going to especially like: the built-in decompiler (introduced in IntelliJ IDEA 14) now has debugging capabilities.
This means that now you can use breakpoints anywhere in the decompiled code, with almost the same experience that you’d normally have when debugging with actual sources:
With IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 missing library sources is not a problem anymore, well, provided that it comes with the line number attributes.
In this workshop we’ll discover how to work effectively with IntelliJ IDEA. Get first-hand tips and tricks and learn to be more productive, all while seeing the hottest new features in action. There will be plenty of time for your questions and conversation.
For more information and to register for the workshop, email email@example.com with your name and address. To cover expenses a £25 fee will be charged at the door and for corporate bookings an invoice can be made.
In the evening there will be a free and open talk for all with Hadi. He will share his thoughts on developing for developers, what makes for a killer IDE and how to continuously roll out new products and the challenges around it. The evening will be very informal with plenty of time reserved for questions and conversation.
Workshop attendees are guaranteed a place at the evening event and the remaining spots are first come, first served. To register now for the evening event only, click on the link “Join and RSVP” from The BASH meetup page. Act fast or miss out!
Great news, everyone! It’s time to reveal what we’ve been working on since December and what new features the next update will bring to you. Today we’re officially announcing the start of IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 EAP (Early Access Program), which means you can not only see the list of new features, but also give them a try and share your feedback!
The following new features are available in the current EAP build:
HiDPI support for Windows/Linux (scaled icons/font-size, no blur)
A brand-new distraction-free mode: no toolbars; no tool windows; no editor tabs; the code is center-aligned; etc. To turn it on, click View → Enter Distraction Free Mode.
The Gradle tool window has been reworked, including view tasks, dependencies and configured run configuration; toolbar with important actions; assign shortcuts for tasks; run custom commands with code completion; and more.
Filtering by repository
Better recognition of commits from different repositories
Annotation coloring now indicates the dates of changes: green for recent changes, red for older changes.
New Annotate Revision and Annotate Previous Revision actions in Annotate page
Initial support for JDK 9 (and its new modular structure)
Project-level file templates
Coding assistance for editing toString, equals/hashCode and getters/setters templates
A new option to use HTTPS for updates and plugin downloads
We are pleased to invite you to our upcoming webinar, Software Architecture as Code, featuring Simon Brown. Register now and join us Thursday, February 12th, 15:00 – 16:00 GMT (10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EST).
With so much technology at our disposal, we’re still manually drawing software architecture diagrams in tools like Microsoft Visio. Furthermore, these diagrams often don’t reflect the implementation in code, and vice versa. In his session Simon will look at why this happens and how to resolve the conflict between software architecture and code through the use of architecturally-evident coding styles and the representation of software architecture models as code.
Simon Brown is an independent consultant and helps organisations to build better software by adopting a lightweight, pragmatic approach to software architecture. He is the creator of the C4 software architecture model and the author of “Software Architecture for Developers”, a developer-friendly guide to software architecture, technical leadership and the balance with agility.

Yesterday we had a pleasure to host a webinar together with Typesafe, where Konrad Malawski, a Scala enthusiast who works on the Akka toolkit, gave a very comprehensive overview of the Reactive Streams specification and one of its implementations—Akka Streams.
The slides from Konrad’s presentation can be found at SlideShare.
If you’ve missed the webinar, don’t worry. You can watch it right now and even share it friends:

Every book is a source of wisdom and happiness. Every book about IntelliJ IDEA is also a source of productivity. Can you imagine how excited we were when we heard that Jarosław Krochmalski wrote his book on IntelliJ IDEA?
Now if you decide to give IntelliJ IDEA a try as a beginner Java developer or coming from another IDE, this book will be of great help!
We couldn’t miss this chance to talk with Jarosław and ask him a few questions about his book, IntelliJ IDEA, open source software, and of course Java. Enjoy reading!
IntelliJ IDEA 14.0.3 update is coming and we need you to help us make it even better! It’s simple, really: get the fresh EAP build (just published today), try it, and send your feedback. In case you’re wondering, here’s the list of changes.
