IntelliJ IDEA 15.0.3 EAP 143.1653 is Out

It’s time to turn the page to 2016. Before you go to the party, be sure to check out a new IntelliJ IDEA 15.0.3 EAP build that brings awaited bugfixes.

Among those bugfixes, the new EAP build adds a new small feature back-ported from IntelliJ IDEA 16 EAP. The inspection that finds code duplicates now has an option to ignore generated code.

IntelliJ IDEA 16 EAP 144.2608 is Out

If you’ve already tried IntelliJ IDEA 16 EAP announced last week, you’ll be glad to know that we’ve just released a new build.

With this build IntelliJ IDEA and the whole IntelliJ platform migrates to Java 8. Users won’t be able to launch the IDE under a JDK older than Java 8. It means plugin developers now can use Java 8 features in their code. This change affects the master branch (144.* builds) and further major releases in Spring, 2016. The bugfix updates (143.*builds) will remain compatible with Java 6.

The inspection that finds code duplicates now has an option to ignore generated code.

Also, we added a new inspection called Declaration access can be weaker. When enabled, it prevents making fields, methods and classes unnecessary public.

This inspection may result in false positives if the corresponding field, method or class is supposed to be used outside the project only as a public API. Enable it on the scopes you need in Settings or simply run it for any scope using Run Inspection by Name via Alt + Shift + Ctrl + I (Alt + Shift + Ctrl + I for OS X).

For Mercurial we made it possible to compare revisions of a file between branches. Previously it was only possible to compare revisions within a single branch.

For the complete list of changes, refer to the release notes.

After you try the new build, don’t forget to share your feedback with us on our discussion forum or directly in the issue tracker.

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.
