    After installing the TeamCity plugin Maia refused to load my project at all (internal ide error), and when I reverted to 8.1.3 (using the backed up project files) I wasn’t able to edit a file – sth got completely wrong with the display.

    Of course as it’s a beta such errors are expected, just a warning if anybody wanted to use it for work :).

    Congratulations on going beta! Any chance of making the zip file available download like the EAP builds?

    “Language polyglot” is a tautology.

    The zip file is now available.

    For TeamCity plugin, you’ll need to install the version from TeamCity 4.5.5 or the latest 5.0 EAP.

    Congrats on the beta! It’s nice to see some neat new features.

    When can we expect to see simple comment wrapping for the various languages? It’s unbelievable that feature is still missing – basically every other editor including emacs has it, it’s so fundamental to editing code. I wait patiently from version to version and still, no love. Anyone?
