It’s already included in your active JetBrains IDE or All Products Pack subscription. Learn more in the dedicated blog post.

In the 2024.1 versions of JetBrains IDEs, we’ve reworked the terminal with both visual and functional enhancements to simplify working with the command line. The new terminal is currently in Beta.

Sticky lines is a new feature that helps you navigate through large files without losing focus.

Other notable changes include various VCS enhancements including in-editor code review for GitHub and GitLab users, a focused view of branch changes in the Log tab and more, as well as user experience improvements, such as the option to scale down the entire IDE to 90%, 80%, or 70%.
