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.
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.
