TL;DR: JetBrains Account integration, automatic plugins update, GitLab and BitBucket integration, impoved performance, and bug fixes.
We are happy to tell you that the Toolbox App is now being used by over 440,000 users. We appreciate your loyalty and trust and would love to hear from you here in the comments or on Twitter mentioning @JBToolbox on which features we need to include to make your experience with the Toolbox App even better.
Here is an overview of the latest improvements to the Toolbox App.
JetBrains Account integration
The Toolbox App now uses OAuth to authenticate in JetBrains Account. This has a lot of benefits:
Single Sign-On: login to your JetBrains Account once in your favorite browser and then approve the Toolbox App to access this account. There is no longer any need to enter your credentials again.
License information: the Toolbox App now lets you quickly buy a license if it can’t find one for your account. Just click on the “Buy” button and go straight to the store page.
Improved Security: the Toolbox App only has access to a limited scope of account data, and the access can be revoked at any time. There is additional protection for your account with 2FA.
Automatic plugins update
With the Toolbox App 1.15, plugins are now stored alongside the IDE and are updated automatically together with the IDE; saving you time and removing the need for additional manual actions.
You may notice additional “Updating plugins…” step during the installation. Since every build now has separate plugin directory the update is possible even when another build is running.
