IntelliJ IDEA 15.0.2 EAP Makes it Easier to Access VCS Tabs

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.

Read the Release Notes for more on what’s been added, improved and fixed, and of course, give the new EAP build a try. Share your feedback with us via the discussion forum and the issue tracker.

Java Annotated Monthly – November 2015

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.
