    Cool. How stable would you say that M1 is? Similar to regular betas or better?

    Can IDEA 6 and 7 coexists or the newer version will replace my previous one ?

    They can coexist together. The performance improvements are worth this milestone alone!

    I downloaded IntelliJ 7M1. My only complaint was that the Jetty integration plug-in had issues. Once those are sorted out I’ll jump from version 6 to 7.

    Looks good but without some of the most useful plugins (like VCSbar, SVNBar, simpleUML, etc. ) working, it doesn’t make much sense using it.
