IntelliJ IDEA 13 Early Preview is Out

Today we have exciting news to share with all IntelliJ IDEA fans who eagerly wait for the new features to appear in their favorite IDE. Almost six months before the official release we are happy to announce the early preview of IntelliJ IDEA 13, codenamed Cardea, which scheduled for release in December of 2013.

We believe that making perfect tools for developers is only possible when listening to feedback from the community. That’s why we are very much looking to hear from everyone about IntelliJ IDEA 13.

Most of the new features in this preview are about Android development support, and cover the new functionality added in Android Studio. Of course, everyone will find something tailored especially to their needs:

Project Configuration

  • Support for importing the configuration of Android projects from build.gradle and building them through Gradle.

Code Editor

  • External annotations (nullability, @MagicConstant) for Android APIs.
  • Display of additional information (including drawable image) for drawable, dimension and string resources in the quick documentation view.
  • Support for gutter color annotations in Java files, as well as showing icon previews in the gutter of Java and XML files.
  • Folding of Android string resources in the Java editor to display the actual string value.
  • Support for running Android Lint checks on the fly in Java code.
  • Many new Lint checks.
  • Initial support for editing RenderScript code.

Layout Editor and Preview

  • Rendering performance improvements.
  • Support for multi-configuration layout preview.
  • Support for working with fragment resources.
  • Improved the UI for choosing device configurations.
  • Device frame rendering in the layout preview.
  • Double-clicking a component in the layout preview opens it in the layout editor.
  • Selection is synchronized between layout preview and editor.
  • Improved display of rendering errors with support for quickfixes.
  • Improved support for RelativeLayout.
  • Support for zooming and auto-zoom of views.
  • Additional selection actions in layout actions bar.
  • Support for control variations in the palette (e.g. multiple variations of TextField with different default settings).

Integrated Tools

  • Action to obtain a screenshot from the device.
  • Integrated 9-patch editor.
  • New UI for viewing the list of connected devices in the Android toolwindow.
  • Support for filtering by package name in logcat.

Also, if you want to take a look at the source code and the changes, we’ve opened a new repository browser for IntelliJ IDEA Community source code.

Feel free to share your feedback on our discussion forum and report bugs to the issue tracker.

Develop with Pleasure!

    But it seems like the following doesn’t work anymore with Android:

    Ctrl+Click on Style tags in XML TextView, no definition found to go to..
    Refactoring name of styles doesn’t change code occurences.

    Will switch back to 12, hope these features will come again

    I am super enthusiastic about this! I was watching the live feed from google i/o and was so pleased when I realized my favorite IDE developers were making an IDE that adresses my main two issues with Android development (which is my day-to-day job): layout previews and gradle integration. I was already using IntelliJ Ultimate, and somewhat pleased with the support for both there, but griping at YouTrack for better versions 😉 Consider me mollified. What the heck, consider me joyous!

    Not working for me, both Firefox and Chromium go into endless redirect loop from https://upsource.jetbrains.com/#idea/view to https://upsource.jetbrains.com/?auth=1#idea/view and vice versa.

    What about your github mirror? The logo has been updated, are the other changes in?

    Congratulations on showing who’s the best IDE in the block! (Google moving from Eclipse to IDEA can be used as another argument on Eclipse vs IDEA topics around the web/real world).

    Also, I’m sure you’ll get a lot of upstream patches from G (not only for Android specific features).

    Hmmm, and know I’m a bit confused:

    So you joined forces with Google. That’s good! But: will “Android Studio” be a commercial product? Because when it’s free then it means I pay the development of a free product by buying the next update. Or am I missing something?

    This is fantastic news!

    I squealed like a fangirl during the livestream yesterday when Android Studio was announced, then I come home and see this. Fantastic!

    One question, will ALL the features outlined here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing/studio.html be available in IDEA, as plugins or otherwise, or will I have to use Android Studio as well to have ALL the features available on the IntelliJ platfrom for Android? The only feature I could see after a quick overview mentioned by them but not by you are ProGuard capabilities, but still.

    Anyways, as I’ve said, this is fantastic news. Can’t wait to see where you’re going with this!

    (And I thought true C/C++ support in the next version was what’d get me the most excited)

    Oh, and I just download this EAP (first time for me doing that). When I try to install it, it seems like it wants to uninstall my 12.1 installation.
    I don’t want that, as I’m sure there are plugins incompatibilities, and instabilities in ver. 13, but I’d REALLY like to try it out. Isn’t it possible to have them installed side by side?

    Windows 8 64-bit, if it matters 🙂

    When will Intellij include Arquillian http://arquillian.org/ support in Intellij?
    This is becoming the main testing environment for enterprise Java code and Intellij has been left behind.

    For mobile app development HTML 5 and Javascript are being used by many companies successfully see http://www.sencha.com/company/ & http://cordova.apache.org/ but Intellij has been left behind. While its true that in some cases, such as with Facebook the app needed to be native, in many cases a hybrid app is all you need.

    We hope Intellij will be a leader in these fields and support these technologies.

    Andrey Cheptsov says:

    @tester, actually sencha and cordova are html5-based engines. IntelliJ IDEA provides support for HTML5, and personally i was able to develop cordova applications from IntelliJ IDEA quite well. what exactly you lack from the support for these engines?

    Common guys. Do not require that the IDE supported some other products like Arquillian and other. There tons of great products on market quite innovative and excited. For example there is no support for 7Bee build tool or lightweight web framework webbee. I think the IDE should provide good extension capabilities similar to Eclipse, so everyone could add support for own favorite product. My desire that the IDE was even smaller and lighter and discarded support of many stuff just providing mechanism of extension when you can install exactly what you need.

    The current Python plugin is not supported by this IDE. Any possibility of seeing it supported in the near future. Our code base has substantial amount of Python code, so the new IDE can’t be used/tested.

    +1 for actually supporting OsX with JDK7. IDEA12 has hopeless font rendering problems (with both OpenJDK and OracleJDK).

    +1 Scala

    IntelliJ is a great Scala IDE, but the false negatives and the poor SBT support are definitely things I’d like to see improved.

    Another mention should be the poorly updated tutorials and Blog posts from the Scala plugin team. That really needs an update because it throws new dev’s down the wrong road more often than it provides answers to common getting started questions. We’re past that now as a team, but it was really frustrating at first to read year-old posts and instructions about something as fast-moving as Scala.

    Simply put, Scala support is the reason my team went with IntelliJ. Please continue the leading support IntelliJ brings to the table.

    Dear JetBrian.
    I am very impressed for great power of Intellj IDEA!
    Hopefully more great version!

    IntelljIdea 12.1.4 has some bugs.
    1. When I import new projects, I can’t remove/add libraries manually in project setting.
    2. FrameLayout Preview issue.
    3. Sometime, I can’t open project setting window.
    After restarting, I can open that.
    4. Would you make let ddms runs on idea’s process?
    When ddms runs, Idea disconnected from ADB.
    Hopefully good resolve!

    I am sure, Intellj Idea13 will be prefect version!
    Thanks for your reading.

    Warm regards.

    I switched from Eclipse because I desired Intellij’s superior vim support. I sorely miss Eclipse’s use of SWT: it’s snappy in Gnome, and the font rendering is beautiful. Intellij’s swing interface is clunkier, slower, and its font rendering is poor. I’ve stopped waiting for Oracle to fix JRE font rendering issues in Linux; I hope your company will see fit to find workarounds for JRE problems like this.

    I have one issue with the interface designer which is Arabic font support, I hope this will be fixed in the next version

    Tried loging to Usource

    Intellij IDEA is great. And it would be twice better with friendly integration of Android and Scala!

    The project in Upsource was renamed, so the correct link is now https://upsource.jetbrains.com/ideace/view

    Let me chime in also on improved Scala support. I would love the worksheet to be as strong as that in Eclipse!

    i think this feature list is not enough to release a new version. why not separate the android development part as a standalone product? and make the idea to be the fastest,most friendly pure Java IDE

    Scala cannot be an afterthought. Scala must be a first class citizen in Idea.

      Dominik, if you mean application servers, then you have to add a run configuration for it, and it will work.

    When LiveEdit will support JSF 2.2 ?

      It’s already supported, just use “Debug index.xhtml” action on the file or “with JavaScript debugger” checkbox in the run configuration.

      But for now it works only when you have implicit URL mapping:

      Faces Servlet

    @Andrey Cheptsov

    I set “with JS debugger”

    On update action and On frame deactivation: Update classes and resources
    I run it in debug mode

    I also change web.xml to:

    Faces Servlet

    Faces Servlet


    If I change something in my xhtml file then i have to hit refresh i browser to see effect

    IDEA13 debug mode is particularly slow, loss of memory.

    We’re currently considering buying licenses of IntelliJ IDEA 12, but don’t want to get stuck with it once version 13 is released.

    Does Jetbrains offer a similar offer to when they released IDEA12?

    It would really suck having to wait until version 13 release for us to purchase the licenses.

    I want my toolbars back!!! The “toolbars are turned off by default” hints that it is actually possible to get them back. I’ve gone through every single setting and can find no way to get the toolbars back! My wildest imagination is not enough to comprehend why anyone would want to get rid of them! I want them back! PLEASE at least give me that option.
