IntelliJ IDEA 14.1.5 Update is Out

While we’re busy working on the new and shiny IntelliJ IDEA 15 (expected this fall), we actually don’t stop improving the existing IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 version. Today we’re happy to let you know about the availability of its new update. Enjoy an even more stable version of your favorite Java IDE.


If you’re running IntelliJ IDEA 14.1, install the patch by clicking Check for Updates. Otherwise, you’re welcome to download the newest version from the official site.

Develop with Pleasure!

    Nice ! Especially fixes on js parsing.
    Somehow 14.1.4 tells me I’m up to date 🙁 Maybe a bit early?

      I’ve published the post too early. The update will become available shortly, sorry!

      Yes, the blog post was published several minutes earlier than the actual patch.

        Doesn’t it in a way feel good, that posting the blog post before the patch (just minutes inbetween), makes IDEA users:

        – Hurry to open or switch to IDEA.
        – Check for updates
        – Try again
        – Get back to the blog.
        – Write a comment about the patch missing for them.
        – Check again before posting it, and then post?

        We like your software, apparently.

      Are you sure you were running a IntelliJ IDEA 14.1.x build?

        That happened to me as well. Had to download the whole 300 MB installation instead of just applying the patch.

        I was running on either 14.1.4 or 14.1.5 EAP, not sure.

        Happens to me, too. Though I know I can just export all my settings, this still feels archaic. Anything I can try to avoid this issue?

    It seems that IntelliJ is now unable to sort JDK 7 system classes? Every JDK class gives a red indication in the editor window.

    Anybody experience issue with not working „Run” action after update?

    Hmm, a cache invalidation and a restart seems to make it work. Sorry.

    This appears to break the lombok plugin: if you rely on lombok, best to stay on 14.1.4 until the plugin is updated.

      Thanks for the info. I’ll stay on 14.1.4 for now, can’t afford testing and seeing if it works or not and downgrading intellij if necessary atm.

    Seems to hang consistently for me. Probably due to Python plugin

    Distraction Free Mode still does not work as expected.
    1. Exit from the mode often takes too much time.
    2. Wrong tab is restored on exit.

    If you are working with flash avoid this update! It produces a massive amount of errors in my projects but I can still build them..

      After installing, you have to go and force reindex of files to make it work.

      Go to File -> Invalidates Cache and Restart, should work for you.
