IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2.5 Update is Available

We’ve just released IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2.5. In addition to bugfixes, it brings the support for macOS Sierra.

As usual, you can get this update either from our website, or via the Check for Updates command right your current IntelliJ IDEA installation, or you could try an alternative and use JetBrains Toolbox App, which has recently been made available as RC.

This brand new way has the advantage that you can use it to manage any of JetBrains IDE you have installed, not just IntelliJ IDEA, from a simple desktop tool.

Develop with Pleasure!

      For me it seems to go well but when it restarts it still is 2016.2.4 and it wants to update again.

    The new version is not usable as long as the artifact is missing dependencies when creating exploded war from modules

    I’ve noticed that when I control-click on list items (lists of files, list of actions in keymaps preferences, etc.), the contextual menu appears, then the list below it scrolls up one item, and the option I choose from the menu is applied to the list item below the one I intended.

    Have you imported required site certificate in the JRE/JDK you are using? Certificates should present inside jre/lib/cacert inorder to work with ssl based urls properly. For me that was the issue.
