IntelliJ IDEA 11.1 Release Candidate

As planned, today we have published the Release Candidate build for IntelliJ IDEA 11.1. You can download the new build from the EAP page or use “Check for updates” to update from within the IDE. The release notes for the new build include mostly bugfixes, along with a number of performance improvements and small functionality enhancements. One thing worth noting is that the “Highlight usages of element at caret” option, which has been available in the product for a while, is now enabled by default.

Please give the new build a try, and let us know about any problems so that we could fix them in the final release!

    The svn code no longer works with my ssh tunnel. All prior versions of Intellij work fine with the ssh tunnel, so it’s something with the new 1.7 support. The error is

    svn: Cannot find tunnel specification for ‘renssh’

    where renssh is defined in the subversion config file.

    One of the main problems I’m running into is the lack of support for Hibernate/Spring @Configuration with LocalSessionFactoryBuilder.

    http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-82748 is a show stopper for me that currently prevents me from using EAP builds at the moment. I hope that there will be another RC with less serious issues before final release so that you can better feedback.

    PHP Plugin seems to not be working in RC. Was working in previous EAP.

    I wouldn’t call this a Release Candidate. More like a beta.

    There are serious performance regressions (compared to pre-11.1):


    And maven regressions (compared to pre-11.1):


    And a re-regression (I know I’ve reported this in earlier versions and seen it fixed…):

    PHP plugin has a broken directory structure on the Plugin Repo, it’s not contained inside the standard php folder, just a lib folder with the contents, you can fix it manually, by moving that file around in your idea home folder.

    Drools and jBPM support was never planned for the 11.1 release.
