Features Releases

IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 is Here!

What makes a better Spring present than a fresh update for your favorite Java IDE? We’ve worked hard this year to make it happen. Go ahead and grab IntelliJ IDEA 14.1, packed with new features, improvements, and bug-fixes.

What's new in IntelliJ IDEA 14.1?

Most parts of the IDE have been enhanced in one way or another:

  • We’ve added debugger capabilities to the built-in decompiler introduced in IntelliJ IDEA 14.
  • Please welcome the brand new Extract Functional Parameter refactoring. Some existing refactorings have been extended as well, including Extract Method, Make Static, Change Signature, and Safe Delete.
  • Try out the brand new Distraction Free Mode for better focus, and take advantage of HiDPI support for Windows or Linux.
  • If you develop for Android, you’ll appreciate all the enhancements and new features brought into v14.1 from the latest Android Studio.
  • Groovy compilation now works much faster.
  • We’ve reworked the Gradle tool window.
  • Git and Mercurial log viewers have been improved.
  • The update brings advanced support for Spring Boot and initial support for Bnd/Bndtools projects.
  • V14.1 introduces initial support for Docker.
  • Database tools offer multiple consoles per data source, now with a schema switcher, local history, and easier access.
  • For improved code generation, you can now customize templates for equals/hashCode and getter/setter methods
  • The HTML editor has been extended with a cool new option for simultaneously editing both opening and closing HTML tags.
  • JavaScript developers will enjoy the support for TypeScript 1.4, a built-in compiler for TypeScript; support for source maps and advanced trace search for spy-js; and V8 profiling for Node.js apps.
  • And much more…
