IntelliJ IDEA 16 EAP Makes it Easier to Add Static Imports

Meet the fresh IntelliJ IDEA 16 EAP build, addressing a number of issues, and bringing several improvements.

Static constants are suggested, too:

If the Add unambiguous imports on the fly option is enabled in Settings → Editor → General → Auto Import, IntelliJ IDEA will import unambiguous static members on the fly.

Develop with Pleasure!
