IntelliJ IDEA 10.5.3 update available, 11 is coming

Just a couple of days before the actual announcement of brand new IntelliJ IDEA 11, we are releasing a bugfix update for the previous version — IntelliJ IDEA 10.5.3.

The update is recommended for everyone on 10.5. It fixes some most critical bugs but also resolves some compatibility issues, e.g. with Android 4.0 SDK, Struts 2.3.1 and Grails 2.0.
And it is a must for those, who updated their Java to 1.6.0_29 on Mac OS X.

Check out the full list of fixes and download the update from IntelliJ IDEA web site.

And you can still get on the “free upgrade” train if you wish. Get IntelliJ IDEA 10 license now (we still have some left) and version 11 is also yours!

Develop with pleasure!
IntelliJ IDEA Team

    This fix doesn’t seem to be part of the package, it was like a show stopper on 10.5.2.
    This is really sad to don’t see fixes like this in this bug fix release.

    Hmmm. My copy of 10.5.2 keeps trying to get me onto a v11 RC. It seems unaware of 10.5.3.

    Can 10.5.3 work with HG 2.0?

    Got the following stacktrace at the end of the update (or the 1st restart?):
    “java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/intellij/util/lang/UrlClassLoader

    Same here with showing 10.5.2 in about box and title bar, after first (second?) start of the IDE (now without an error & stacktrace) I already was thinking the update fails, only the build number has changed.

    You should really have better QA on your updates.

    Got a “java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/intellij/util/lang/UrlClassLoader” after upgrade, not I have a lot of SpringBean ClassCastExceptions stacktraces in idea.log:
    java.lang.ClassCastException: com.intellij.spring.model.xml.custom.CustomNamespaceSpringBean cannot be cast to com.intellij.spring.model.xml.beans.SpringBean.
    Cannot rollback, nor upgrade. Version shows 10.5.2 but there no upgrades available.

    there is still (since Version 10) the problem with the annotations, when you try to view annotations from files from the initial import there comes a NullPointer exception:

    My IDEA 10.5.2 only showed me the update to 11RC. I was able to download the patch for 10.5.3 via File > Settings > Updates > Check.

    After all, version 10.5.2. is shown, but the version number is increased. Seems, that the version number was forgotten.

    Got an error when tried to apply the patch saying that idea64 couldn’t be upgraded (I use the 64 bit version of idea), but decided to give it a try anyway. Also got the same class loaders errors while applying the patch.

    It did say the path was applied but the version displayed is 10.5.2, not 10.5.3. I am not sure if the patch was applied or not, but when I check for updates it doesn’t report anything to be upgraded.

    I think the patch was applied only partially and I am not sure if I can trust Intellij’s current state at this point. Is there a fix for this patch coming out soon?
