    i’m confused. i’m running 140.2285.5. when i say “check for updates”, it says i’m at the latest version. but clearly i’m not. explanation?

  3. Mark T. Kennedy says:

    let me clarify. previous updates to my EAP instance were implemented in place. “check for updates” would detect, download, and patch the current instance (within the current file tree). this update to my EAP instance was *not* detected by “check for update”. so to update, i had to download and install by hand. and that is the source of my confusion. when is it done in place? when (and why) does it require a fresh download?

    Nice, I don’t know how many time I created dummy file under /tmp for that reason. Great feature!

    Keep up the good work :-)

    How is it possible to run a Java scratch file, for example?

  6. Steve says:

    And once more us PHP developers are not allowed to participate, it’s now been almost 2 weeks since the initial release and still no plugin update.
    Why can’t you just mention in the blog entry that the API version has changed and PHP will break or something (or even better, make sure it gets updated as well)? It is an officially supported IntelliJ language no?

    First thing I look for when a new EAP is out is the fix of the following ticket
    Is it so hard to fix it?

    Best regards
