Perforce Helix Core Plugin Goes Open Source
IntelliJ IDEA has plugins to support various Version Control Systems. Some, however, are only available in IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate, and until now, Perforce Helix Core integration was among them. Starting with 2021.1, the Perforce Helix Core plugin is open-source and compatible with IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition, though it is not bundled. The plugin can be installed from the marketplace: https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugin/69-perforce-helix-core This plugin will continue to be bundled with IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate. The source code is available at https://github.com/JetBrains/intellij-plugins/tr
CVS Integration Deprecation
As part of the previously announced effort, in IntelliJ IDEA 2020.3, we are deprecating CVS Integration. The CVS Integration plugin is not bundled with the IDE since 2019.1 but is still available in the plugin repository. The sources are also available in the common repository, so it is possible to submit pull requests with fixes and improvements, and if there are PRs, we will release an update of the plugins with the changes. Cheers, Your IntelliJ IDEA team
End of support for TFS 2014 and older
The IntelliJ platform currently has two main plugins for integration with TFS servers – the one from JetBrains that supports old TFS versions (up to 2015) and server-type workspaces, and the one from Microsoft that supports newer TFS versions (starting with 2015) with local workspaces and Azure cloud. As the number of old TFS installations steadily decreases, so too does the demand for support for old versions. Following this trend, we unbundled the JetBrains TFS Integration plugin in the 2019.1 release, and we are now announcing the end of support for the TFS Integration plugin in 2020.1.
2018.1 changes to Subversion integration
Summary Subversion working copies 1.6 and earlier are no longer supported, and it is now required to use a command-line svn client for integration with Subversion. Note that Subversion allows using higher working copy formats with an older server, so even if you have 1.6 svn server, you could use 1.7 or 1.8 working copy. If for some reasons you still need to use the 1.6 working copy format and cannot update it, please comment on the request. (more…)
SVNKit library is removed from the platform
IntelliJ 2018.1 removes the support of svn integration via SVNKit. The library is also removed from the platform dependencies and is no longer available for plugins. Now a command-line svn client is the only way to integrate with svn and execute svn-commands. We made our best to maintain compatibility, however, some breakages could not be avoided. API changes are described at http://www.jetbrains.org/intellij/sdk/docs/reference_guide/api_changes_list.html Here is the list of the affected plugins known to us (plugins from the Plugin repository): SVN Revision Graph https://plugins.
End of support for Visual SourceSafe and ClearCase
As we announced some time ago, we are discontinuing support for ClearCase and Visual SourceSafe as of the 2017.3 release. This implies several things: Visual SourceSafe Integration plugin has being unbundled for some time already and starting from the latest EAP, ClearCase plugin is also removed from the standard package. Since we do not plan any further development of the plugins, we will close all YouTrack reports for these plugins as of the 2017.3 release. Plugins are now compatible with the Community Edition and are published in the JetBrains plugin repository: https://plugin
