    This is great! Please consider support for multiple monitors as well.

    Yes, multiple monitors support would be great as well as float editor tab (similar to NetBeans)

    The new UI is pretty cool, I really love the scrollbars, minimized size of borders and possibility to hide tool buttons. But I have encountered problem, that may be just OS X-specific. I’m unable to use some Option+Key combinations as shortcuts (e.g. Option+4). They either do nothing, or write a special character such as cent symbol.

    Oh man… I just bought Idea 9 2 weeks ago (July 14th) :/

    Is there a chance I could get a free upgrade when Idea X becomes available?

    Unfortunately not. You can use the EAP builds for free during the EAP period, but you’ll need to buy an upgrade when the final version of IDEA X is released.

    Yes, there probably will be such a “period”. No dates known though. Stay tuned.
    You’ll need to buy an upgrade when the final version of IDEA X is released if you purchase now.

    How about adding useful features to IJ like multiple monitor support before you go cramming it full of performance sapping features?

    I’m not upgrading to IJ10 until this has been added.

    In IntellIJ 5, you didn’t have true multimonitor but you could at least navigate to the same class file and put them side by side. It’s since been removed!

    I’d appreciate it if you could vote for this:

    When looking at the internals of someone’s API, it’s very useful esp when their class is 1000+ LOC! I’m looking at you JTable, most of the JDK, etc
