Before the end of 2017, the JetBrains Toolbox family of products have been updated for the third time to 2017.3! Every tool has been expanded, polished, and refined in multiple areas, to give you a superior user experience and the biggest productivity gains yet.
And it got another addition to the family — JetBrains GoLand, a new cross-platform GO IDE.
The new IDE extends the IntelliJ platform with coding assistance and tool integrations specific to the Go language. Read more about GoLand and try it!
Note: If you use IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate, you can take advantage of GoLand’s functionality inside IntelliJ IDEA via this plugin.
As to the other changes, we’ll start with WebStorm and DataGrip as they empower the other IntelliJ Platform IDEs with features for web development and database development.
DataGrip is packed with improvements that are also available in the other JetBrains Toolbox IDEs. The changes include new features in the Database tree view such as Group data sources and others. The Data editor can paste data in a DSV format and compare cells in Diff viewer; there is a new SQL generator, better JOIN statement completion, convenient execution of script files and queries, plus enhancements in SSH.
Rider enables debugging of third-party code and extends the debugger in many other ways, introduces a new project wizard, adds C# Interactive, polishes unit testing UI, enables out-of-the-box TSLint and CoffeeScript support, evolves Unity integration and adopts features from the latest ReSharper and IntelliJ Platform releases.
CLion integrates with Valgrind Memcheck and Boost.Test, offers a more flexible way to configure toolchains, comes with dozens of C++ language support fixes, improves support for developing audio applications with JUCE library and supports MSVC extensions. One important addition to the IDE is Kotlin/Native support.
IntelliJ IDEA update is packed with new features and important bug fixes. It brings smarter coding assistance, a better debugger, run dashboard, enhanced support for many frameworks, and more.
PhpStorm has significant performance improvements in typing latency in the editor, PHP 7.1 nullability support, new inspections for unhandled exceptions, improved Twig support, and many other enhancements.
RubyMine significantly improves the performance of the IDE and provides better resolution and code insight. It also adds awesome RuboCop improvements and support for Linux Subsystem on Windows (WSL) which makes environment configuration on Windows a breeze.
AppCode delivers Swift 4 and Xcode 9.x support, dozens of improvements in Swift and mixed Objective-C/Swift resolution engine, improved performance of incremental builds, and lots of new C++ support features and improvements.
ReSharper has new debugging features, great new abilities to the code formatting engine, Improved Extract Method refactoring, Performance Guide for fine-tuning both ReSharper and Visual Studio settings to improve the overall IDE responsiveness, with over 300 various fixes and much more!
In other ReSharper Ultimate news, dotTrace adds performance forecasts to Timeline Viewer, and introduces viewing backtraces in methods and subsystems, dotCover brings support for C# 7 local functions and initial support for reverse statement coverage. ReSharper C++ improves its language understanding including the C++17 and C++14 specification; integrates Clang-tidy; and adds more code inspections.
