You are welcome to download IntelliJ IDEA 12.1 EAP 126.232 edition of your choice and try the new features.

Among numerous bug fixes, the new release brings:

  • Basic code assistance for Java FX files
  • Basic support for graph inference available in Java 8
  • Better completion for the first item from the suggestion list
  • Completion to override/implement Java methods
  • Significantly improved support for Spring projects with mixed XML and annotation-based configurations

Please note that Early Access Program offers features which are still under development. This means that the quality may be far below even beta standards. We strongly recommend to backup your project before the first run.

Develop with pleasure!

    Great news; thanks for opening up the EAP for 12.1.

    I am missing the new build’s release notes on the confluence page – will you post them there?

    any plans to add support for multiple AIR SDKs, ANE, automation in building ANE?

    @Skitsanos What do you mean by multiple AIR SDKs? Selection of AIR SDK instead of Flex SDK will be supported in the next EAP. Development of AIR apps using ANE is already supported since IntelliJ IDEA 11.1. Development of ANE themselves is possible, though there’s no any specific support for this workflow, so some manual configuration is needed.

    Finally this:

    – Completion to override/implement Java methods

    This was something I was really waiting a lot from Eclipse 🙂

    Now I’m still waiting for a better support on LogCat filtering 🙂

    There is a problem with editor scrolling though.

    When you scroll in extremes it starts switching editors.. So when I scroll top, and the editor has already reached the first line and if I continue scrolling it will go to previous tab. The same happens when I scroll down, it will switch to next tab.

    Is this an intended behaviour? or a bug?

    – Completion to override/implement Java methods

    What about about support for the latest Lint rules from Android Tools?
    And improvements to LogCat, so we can filter the messages by package name, for example.
    Any chance we will see this in 12.1?

    “Enhanced integration with Git”
    Thanks, this is welcome. In 12.0.3 (and 4) Git integration is confusing (in functionality and in terminilogy). The related documentation is outdated or incorrect. There is no way some one new to IntelliJ IDEA and Git could set up a working Git integration.

    Fortunately I had learnt the Git command line tool before. This tool helped me to complete/correct the missing parts IJ Idea 12.0.3 failed to complete.
