We don’t stop improving IntelliJ IDEA even after a major release. The fresh IntelliJ IDEA 15.0.2 EAP build introduces a much easier way to access individual VCS tool window tabs (Local changes, Log and Shelf).
Now, instead of opening this tool window via Alt + 9 (Cmd + 9 on OS X), and then using the mouse or Alt + Arrow (Ctrl + Arrow on OS X) to get to a tab you need, you can assign shortcuts to open the tabs directly.
Great news! Yesterday the Kotlin team released an update to Kotlin Beta, which brings several language improvements and library changes. Since IntelliJ IDEA 15 comes bundled with the Kotlin plugin, we’re in a hurry to include this update into our new EAP build.
From mobile devices, to middleware, to enterprise applications, Java has played a crucial role in shaping the design of business software for over twenty years. But Java’s audience is both the means of its growth and cause its own captivity. When a programming language is used by nearly half the world’s developers, we seldom stop to ask, “Is there a better way?” There is no question the best years of Java are yet to come, but there is change afoot in the Java ecosystem. Looking toward the next twenty years of Java, we must carefully ask ourselves, where does it lead us?

Great news from the JetBrains team: today we’re announcing the release of IntelliJ IDEA 15!
As always, the new IntelliJ IDEA release brings a rich set of new features, better user interface, more built-in tools and integrations, and further improved coding assistance that is consistent across the entire range of supported languages and frameworks.
In other great news, Kotlin, the JVM language that JetBrains is crafting, goes Beta. Now is a very good time to try it out for productivity, conciseness and perfect Java interoperability. IntelliJ IDEA 15 bundles the Kotlin plugin and provides support for Kotlin out of the box. To get started with Kotlin, use this handy tutorial.
