    Great news. Unfortunately, IDEA-114336 is still present (JSF faces is no longer recognized). Hopefully, this will be fixed in the next RC.

      We switched it off by default due to our user problems

          May be a late reply, but in case you haven’t figured it out yet, just add the ‘’ option to the /bin/ file. Don’t forget to restart IDEA.

    Python plugin v3.0.1 does not seem to be working with RC1, it was alright with the previous build/last beta. Python plugin is shown as red at the plugins list. Is this a known issue or I’m doing something wrong while updating?

      Same deal for the Ruby plugin.

    How can I register EAP? The register menu is greyed out.

      You cannot register EAP version, it has builtin evaluation license which cannot be changed.

    Python/Scala support seems to be gone in 133.79: “Plugin is incompatible with current IntelliJ IDEA installation”. 132.97 did not have this problem, but I did notice a roughly 50% decrease in speed for a Django app as compared to bypassing IntelliJ IDEA and running from the command line.
