Welcome IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 Release Candidate

5 months of development with almost 2 months of Early Access for IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 are coming to an end and we’re on the finish line now.
Please welcome IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 Release Candidate.

We’ve been blogging about the changes and additions in this version and we will continue as some things are still not unveiled. But it is clear already that the release is a significant step for both Ultimate and Community editions of IntelliJ IDEA with such features as:

  • Full Java 7 Support
  • Reworked UI for refactorings and Search/Replace
  • Easier code completion that does not require you to press Shift for uppercase letters
  • JavaScript Debugger in Google Chrome
  • Groovy, Spring, JavaScript, Flex support improvements and so on.

Of course, with a Release Candidate we are hoping to hear your feedback before we announce a general availability release.

Enough words, download IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 RC from

If you are interested, here is the list of changes since the latest EAP build.

Develop with pleasure!

    А как же супер-пупер критический баг с (не)обновлением дерева структуры проекта? и всё иссьюсы, которые в этом баге перечислены и у которых статус “якобы пофикшено” ?

    All of the 10.5 EAP releases have been Dead on Arrival for me.

    I think you mean “obviously” rather than “apparently” 🙂

    Great, the wait for the anticipated 10.5.1 begins… =)
    What is the targeted number of bugs in the GA release? Has this goal changed since 10.0?

    We don’t have any fixed number of bugs goals for IntelliJ IDEA releases.
