IntelliJ IDEA 15 EAP Improves Debugger and Git Support

To make the upcoming major release feature-rich, we keep adding new features almost every week.

Force Early Return in Java Debugger

The Java debugger in the new EAP build got a new action called Force Early Return. Now you can force the return from the current method without executing any more instructions from it:

v15_debugger_early_return

If the method returns a value, you’ll have to specify it (smart code completion provided):

v15_debugger_early_return_2

If the method has try-finally blocks, you’ll be able to choose whether to execute them or not:

v15_debugger_early_return_finally

Rebase Action in Git Branches Menu

Another improvement is the Rebase action, now available in the Branches menu on equal terms with Merge: supporting multiple roots, automatic stash/unstash and conflict resolve:

v15_vcs_rebase_in_branches_popup

We hope you’ll find these two enhancements useful. Your feedback is always welcome. Share your impressions and concerns in the EAP discussion forum, and submit found reports to our issue tracker.

For a complete list of changes, check our the release notes.

Develop with Pleasure
