New IntelliJ IDEA: Java 7, New Features, New Pricing
JetBrains converts more developers with a new, specially priced IntelliJ IDEA featuring cuttingedge technologies such as Java 7, Groovy 1.8 and Spring 3.1
May 16, 2011
Prague, Czech Republic, February 24, 2011 — JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivityenhancing tools for software developers, have announced the public availability of IntelliJ IDEA 10.5, a free update for its award-winning IDE for JVM-based and polyglot development.
Being able to use the latest technologies available is a key to making your development project a success. Yet another key is being highly productive with them.
That is exactly what you get with this free IntelliJ IDEA update—worth a full major release—which is loaded with support for the latest technologies as well as further usability improvements.
“While this release focuses on Java 7 support, we also worked hard on making the most common IDE operations easier to use. Some of these changes, such as new in-place refactorings and a reworked search/replace UI, made it to this release, while others will be available in version 11 later this year,” said Max Shafirov, IntelliJ IDEA project lead. “On the market side of things, in 2010 we experienced amazing user base growth with the free edition of IntelliJ IDEA. We are now offering IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 Ultimate at a special lower price for both individual developers and companies, to build on this success.”
The key features of IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 update include:
- Full Java 7 Support
- Reworked UI for refactorings and Search/Replace, simplified code completion
- Groovy 1.8 and Spring 3.1 support
- Jetty integration
- XSLT2 support
