    Tapestry module sounds really great, will test it asap!
    But I am a bit disappointed that there is no Mercurial support 🙁

    Have you tried the hg4idea plugin from ? As far as we know, the plugin is good enough and it doesn’t make sense for us to reimplement its functionality.

    What I don’t see but I was hoping for was an end to sudden, inexplicable pauses in operations. Developers with more than a dozen tabs open report this problem fairly regularly and I encounter it at least once a day.

    Was anything done about these?

    Actually Intellij IDEA 8 already have support for Python and is good. I don’t understand the guy that said still not support for Python in IDEA maybe you are not using a recent release of IDEA.

    By the way I think it was better to make officially the support of Wicket than Tapestry. Nobody use Tapestry anymore, It is Wicket the one that It is hot this days.

    The hg4idea plugin implements a relatively rudimentary level of hg support, compared to VCS plugins implemented by JetBrains. There is no pull or push without update, no checkout from version control, no init, and on my MacOSX machines, Changes->Repository and Changes->Incoming panels have never displayed anything.

    The author has expressed disinterest in implementing functionality beyond what he personally requires, which is perfectly understandable for an open source type project.

    I had hoped that JetBrains would be able to fill in a few of these gaps with their expertise at VCS plugin implementation. For now, I absolutely must switch out of the IDE and open a console in order to manage Mercurial projects.
