Early Access Program Features

IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3 EAP is here!

Please welcome our new IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3 EAP build. This build includes several changes let’s dive right in and take a look at the most notable ones.

New Build Tool Window

IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3 had a new Build Tool Window for all of the Gradle build output. However, for running the task and testing, displaying the output in the Build Tool Window was not as useful for our users as we had hoped. So starting with this EAP, the output from the running task and test is shown in the Run and Debug window, as it was in IntelliJ IDEA 2017.2.

Replace in Path

IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3 provided the ability to replace usages right inside the Replace in Path dialog: Use the Replace button (Alt+R) to replace selected occurrences and the Replace All button (Alt+A) to replace all found usages.
As for the Replace Usages dialog, it will be still invoked when you go from the Replace in Path dialog to the Find Tool Window.


This EAP also has a newly designed progress bar.

Java Stream Debugger

In Java Stream Debugger the Split Mode / Flat Mode button allows you to select the way operations are displayed: all at once or individually. Starting with this EAP build the selected mode (Flat or Split) is saved in the new Stream Trace window.
