IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2 EAP Improves Log for Git and Mercurial

Posted on by Andrey Cheptsov

A fresh IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2 EAP build is out and ready to test. Besides usual bugfixes it brings improvements to the Git/Mercurial Log viewer.

The Log viewer now loads in the background on every change (a commit, fetch, rebase, etc). As a result, it’s always ready when you open it.

Also, we’ve reworked the way we show the loading progress. Now, when refreshing, there’s a thin stripe shown under the toolbar.

We hope you’ll enjoy these minor improvements.

If you experience any problems, feel free to file issues directly to the issue tracker.

Develop with Pleasure!

    I hope it won’t load the full log because, so far, whenever I tried to load the full log of a 10 years old file, the IDE froze and I had force quit.
