User experience

The new UI made default for all users

The new UI for JetBrains IDEs was introduced two years ago and has been continuously refined. We’ve diligently collected your feedback and improved the IDEs’ look and feel to ensure a smooth and gradual transition. Over the last few releases, we’ve seen high adoption rates for the new UI, and we’ve addressed the main issues based on your feedback. Now, we believe the new UI is ready for everyone. Starting with the DataSpell 2024.2 EAP build, it will become the default option.If you prefer the classic UI, you can still use it by installing the corresponding plugin, which is available from JetBrains Marketplace.

Markdown file

Support for math syntax in Markdown files

DataSpell can now natively render mathematical expressions in Markdown files. Starting with DataSpell 2024.2 EAP, you can use $ to insert inline math expressions and $$ for code blocks with math content.


New Graph Options: First Parent and No Merges

Git has a useful option for viewing the history of changes in a branch: –first-parent. Use it with the git log command. This option simplifies the log by hiding individual commits that came with the merge, making it easier to track changes. 

We’ve also added filtering with the –no merges command, which displays the history without any merge commits. 

Both options can be selected under the Graph Options button in the Git tool window.
