Better Rename refactoring

The Rename refactoring gets even smarter and now notifies you about potential conflicts that might be introduced by the renaming you are considering. The symbol name conflicts are displayed in the Problems Detected window, where you can opt to explore them in the Conflicts tab, cancel, or proceed with the refactoring.

Cassandra database

Thanks to our wonderful colleagues on the DataGrip team, GoLand now supports Cassandra databases.

Improved JSON support

You don’t need to take care of commas anymore! GoLand automatically adds or removes commas at the end of lines when you move them using Move Statement Up or Move Statement Down (Cmd/Ctrl-Shift-Up/Down), and when you add a comma for a new line inside an object.

Move Statement Down action in JSON file

The IDE provides three options for surrounding items in JSON via the Surround With action (Alt-Cmd/Ctrl-T): with quotes, curly braces, or square braces. It also automatically escapes symbols when you paste code in a JSON file.
