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!
