IntelliJ IDEA 14 EAP 138.1029 is out with a built-in Java decompiler

If you’ve already joined IntelliJ IDEA 14 EAP, grab the freshly baked build that we published just now. If you haven’t, it’s a perfect time to do so now.

The most notable change in the new build is a built-in decompiler for Java classes. Now you don’t need any third-party plugins to take a look at what’s inside a library for which you don’t have the source code. This might not always work for Java 8 and non-Java classes, but we’re working on making it better and your feedback is always appreciated.


Other interesting things to try out:

  • Windows installer with bundled JRE uses Java 8
  • OS X installer with bundled JRE uses Java 7 Update 60
  • Importing Spring bean configurations when importing an STS project
  • The Open action from the Welcome screen now opens single files

Check out the complete release notes.

Stay tuned for more details and don’t forget to write back to our discussion forum and issue tracker!

Develop with Pleasure!
