IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2.1 EAP updates Kotlin support to 1.0.3

Great news! IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2.1 is on the horizon. You’re welcome to give its first EAP build a try. In addition to the usual dose of bugfixes, this EAP build updates the bundled Kotlin plugin version to 1.0.3. Here’s a little more insight into what it brings you.

If you’ve ever pasted Java code into a Kotlin file, you’ve probably noticed that IntelliJ IDEA offers to automatically convert it to Kotlin. However, this used to work only if the code was copied from inside the IDE. Now it works no matter where you got the code, even if it is a StackOverflow page.

Code completion for Kotlin also got better. IntelliJ IDEA suggests non-imported members and adds an import statement automatically on selection. Smart Completion is available after by and in statements.

The Move Element Left/Right actions, which were added earlier for Java, now work for Kotlin.

And finally, the Kotlin Bytecode tool window now has a Decompile button.

For more details read the announcement in the Kotlin blog.

As always, we appreciate your feedback here in the comments as well as in our issue tracker.

Develop with Pleasure!

One Response to IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2.1 EAP updates Kotlin support to 1.0.3

  1. Martin says:

    There is an issue that generated classes (that are correctly marked as source/test classes) are not on the classpath when you run your modules configuration.

    Affected is 2016.2 stable release, even this EAP.

    Reverted back to 2016.1.3
