User experience

File sorting by modification time in the Project view 

GoLand 2023.2 EAP 4 brings the long-awaited option to arrange your files in the Project view based on their modification time. This new functionality automatically reorders the files whenever the changes in your project are saved. To enable this feature, open the three dots menu in the Project view and then select Tree Appearance | Sort by Modification Time.

Pinned run configurations in the Run widget

To make managing multiple run configurations easier, we’ve implemented the option to pin preferred configurations in the Run widget. To add a run configuration to the Pinned section, open the three dots menu next to its name and select Pin. If you have multiple pinned configurations, you can easily rearrange them by dragging and dropping within the list.

The Kafka plugin

The new Kafka plugin lets you monitor your Kafka event streaming processes. You can: 

  • Connect to a Kafka cluster.
  • Produce and consume messages in different formats, including Avro and Protobuf.
  • Manage topics and monitor consumer groups.
  • Use Confluent Schema Registry and AWS Glue Schema Registry.

You can find more details on the Documentation page

That’s it for today! We’d love to hear what you think about the new features. Get in touch with us on Twitter, leave your comments here, open an issue in our tracker, or drop us a message in the Gophers Slack #goland channel. Thanks!
