We are excited to announce that IntelliJ IDEA 11.1 has finaly arrived and is available for download.
From the feature-list below you may wonder why such a big update is only a minor version.
In many aspects this release finishes what we had started with version 11 last year.
We could not finish Subversion 1.7 support at that moment because of several reasons. And we knew you could not wait for version 12 release to get it.
The Gradle support we added in 11 was a good start but we felt (and you told us too) that there should be more.
The new IDE UI created last year was a very welcome change but if you compare it to the current you’ll see the difference. It’s in details. But its always about details, isn’t it?
The major new features of IntelliJ IDEA 11.1 include:
- Subversion (SVN) 1.7 support
- Reworked UI for Git branches, branches synchronization for multi-root projects
- Android Lint and some other tools integration
- Better Gradle integration
- EcmaScript 6 (Harmony) support (Ultimate)
- Sybase and DB2 SQL dialects (Ultimate)
- Hibernate 4.0 (Ultimate)
- Improved Flex project setup (Ultimate)
- Performance improvements
- Further UI tuning
Please read more about these and other new features of IntelliJ IDEA 11.1 on our What’s New page.
