- A new UI for browsing course cards.
- Courses that require additional plugins are now displayed.
- Many improvements relating to JetBrains Academy.
Let’s start exploring!
A new UI for browsing course cards
It’s never been easier to navigate through a list of courses and select the one you need. Now you have all the information to make a decision quickly, including the rating, the vendor, and how popular it is, all displayed next to the course name in the list:
Courses that require additional plugins are now displayed
We went further and added courses that require installation of additional plugins to the list of available courses. To install a course like that, simply click the “Install and Enable” button.
Go ahead, select a course to start with, and Happy Learning!
Many improvements for JetBrains Academy, Scala language support, and more
