    Wonderful news. The more recent versions of 9.0 have been excellent. I hope you folks provide full refactoring support for Groovy as you do for Java. Peter Gromov indicated that it’s not top priority but I hope that JetBrains gets this done in the next few months.

    Heartiest congratulations to Dmitry and the rest of the IDEA team. Great work.
