Why an experiment? Here’s an interview I (Trisha Gee) did with Paul to help frame the webinar, explain what we’ll be doing, and dive into our ideas about “fail faster” and “flow.”

Java Annotated Monthly – October 2019

Wow, what a bumper month!  Summer is well and truly over and we are Being Productive!  This month’s edition is absolutely huge and I didn’t even do any particular research for the newsletter, there was just a lot of interesting stuff kicking around. Of course we have Java 13, and I’ve added two new sections, career advice and testing. Not testing your career, although that would be really useful too. There are also a lot of Spring Boot tutorials because I’ve been leaning on Google a lot this month for my live coding demo for Spring One Platform in Austin next week. Set aside some serious time for this edition!

Preview the Performance Improvements in IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3!

We’ve just published a new EAP build of the upcoming IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3, which focuses heavily on improving the performance and overall quality of the IDE.

Now, when the major performance changes are included in the latest IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 EAP build, we can tell you about the key changes in detail.

Faster startup

As soon as you launch the IDE, you’ll see one of its major performance improvements – much faster startup.

While we always strive to improve the IDE’s performance, since v2019.2 we have making special efforts to reduce startup times, and this release cycle continues this long-term effort of speeding up the startup time.

This upcoming major version v2019.3 reduces startup times even further by introducing substantial architectural changes to the IntelliJ Platform.

What’s New in IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 EAP3?

Today we’ve launched the new EAP build for the upcoming IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 with lots of improvements.

As usual, EAP builds for IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate are free to use, but they will expire within 30 days of the build date.

Improved mismatched types tooltip

Continuing the work of polishing IntelliJ IDEA, we have reworked the mismatched type tooltip to improve its readability. Normally, you’ll see the mismatched types tooltip when an argument type does not match the parameter type in a method call, or if the actual type doesn’t match the expected type in assignments

Previously, it was rather difficult to view the whole type that was used as an argument because the type might be too long. Now, the IDE doesn’t show the fully qualified names if the provided type name is different from what is required. It displays the fully qualified name only if type names are the same but the packages are different.

IntelliJ IDEA Starts 2019.3 Early Access Program

We’ve been working for a while now on the next major release, IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3, which is due out by the end of this fall.

Today we have great news to share – we’ve just launched the Early Access Program (EAP) for IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 and now you can download and try v2019.3 before it’s officially released. You can download EAP builds from our website, get them from the Toolbox App, or update to them using snaps if you’re an Ubuntu user. As usual, the EAP builds for IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate are free to use but expire within 30 days of the build date.

We never stop working to boost your development experience in IntelliJ IDEA, and with each release we devote a lot of effort to making improvements and fixing bugs. If you keep an eye on our blogs though, you may know that, rather than introducing new features, with the upcoming 2019.3 release we’re almost exclusively targeting performance and quality.

To this end, we’ve organized a quality marathon. Most of the IntelliJ team is now working on fixing problems that affect the most users, as well as eliminating performance issues and enhancing usability.

Please keep in mind that v2019.3 is still in a stage of heavy development and therefore the EAP builds might be unstable. If you encounter any bugs please report them to our issue tracker.

The release notes list all the changes that have been addressed up to this moment. In this post, we’ll take a look at the most interesting improvements and notable fixes.
