IntelliJ IDEA 15 EAP + Kotlin = Love

Now that IntelliJ IDEA 15 EAP is available, we keep updating it every week, as promised. Every update brings more new features and bug-fixes, according to your feedback in the EAP discussion forum and our issue tracker.

The EAP build we published yesterday comes with a cool bundled Kotlin plugin:


As those following the latest news in the Kotlin blog may know, the Kotlin team is working hard to make it ready for the release this year. If you haven’t given Kotlin a try yet, today may be a good time. One place to start would be the language syntax basics.

Another notable improvement is support for the RegEx case transformation syntax in Find and replace:


The supported commands include “\l”, “\L”, “\u”, “\U” and “\E”. If you wonder where such syntax comes from, check out the Perl documentation.

The full list of changes is available in the release notes.

Develop with Pleasure!
