IntelliJ IDEA 16 EAP Makes it Easier to Add Static Imports

Posted on by Andrey Cheptsov

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

A minor, yet helpful improvement in the new build is better handling of static imports. Previously IntelliJ IDEA provided a quick-fix to import static methods. Now it suggests to add static imports in the very same way as it does with regular ones:

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.

As always, we appreciate your feedback about the new build in our discussion forum as well as your bug reports in the issue tracker.

Develop with Pleasure!

    Nice feature. Does it work with Scala implicit?

    Thanks

    Are there any news regarding showing unversioned files in the commit dialog? Since there is no activity on the bug tracker (https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-73077), I’m hoping to draw some attention to this impactful omission in a otherwise great IDE.

      We are working on the fix right now. The plan is to put it in IDEA 16. Or at least in IDEA 16.X.

    Any plan to make “Find in path” work properly (https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-140074)?

    Thanks
