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.

Develop with pleasure!
