IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3.2 is here!

Today we’re happy to announce that a new IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3.2 bug-fix update is now available! Check out our release notes for the full list of fixes; and download the new version from the JetBrains Website or via Toolbox App.

First and foremost, the Kotlin plugin bundled with the IDE has been updated to v1.2.10. The updated plugin contains a fix for a major Gradle performance regression KT-21557.

This update fixes lots of various issues, the most notable are:
For Gradle test runner, the Rerun failed tests button is again available inside the Debug tool window. IDEA-183164
Now, the IDE doesn’t crash after a function creation or a function replacement in the Redshift console editor IDEA-183889.
Files generated by the annotation processor aren’t stored in the output directory anymore IDEA-183336.
The IDE now selects the appropriate Gradle JVM automatically IDEA-149592, this also works for the first project in Gradle IDEA-148681.
The issue with too many processes indexing a Git repository has been fixed IDEA-177754.

As you may know, with each update we also try to give our features a polish, to make them even more ergonomic and user-friendly. In IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3.2 the Find In Path action has been updated.
The Find In Path action allows you to perform a search through the whole project, module, directory or scope. When you perform a search in a chosen directory using Find In Path, you have the option to enable the search in subdirectories, by default, this option is activated.
Now, the IDE advises you to enable search in the subdirectories, if the recursive search has been disabled and there are no results after just a directory search.


Another improvement in this area is the ability to configure the maximum file size in which to perform a search with a Find in Path action.

Also, now the IDE supports Heroku API v3.

For Spring Boot we added support for the new SB 2.0.0 properties for managing actuator endpoints. Also dedicated support for java.time.Duration has been added to the configuration files.

As always, please report any problems you find to our issue tracker. We look forward to your feedback here in the comments, or on Twitter.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

      Hi Dmitriy,
      Recursive search is enabled by default, no changes here. With this update we added a notification in case you disabled recursive search.

    I upgraded the IDEA from 17.2.3 to 17.3.2 today, when checking the existing project build (gradle), I got this exception:
    java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: org/jetbrains/kotlin/kapt/idea/KaptGradleModel : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0

    I double checked and verified in the settings that the gradle used is pointing to a local copy of gradle binaries (4.1) which can be run under JDK7, and also checked the project settings and compile settings both of which are using JDK7 as well. Running the gradle manually from cmd line is working fine, of course.

    Does gradle plugin requires JDK 8 now in IDEA?

    I changed the setting of gradle by pointing to JDK 8 and then build went through. For project purpose, I need it compiled and built for Java 7 for compatibility concern. Wondering if this is a setting issue or any workarounds to apply?

    Does this “First and foremost, the Kotlin plugin bundled with the IDE has been updated to v1.2.10. The updated plugin contains a fix for a major Gradle performance regression KT-21557.” mean that you won’t get the latest unless you have this version of the IDE?

    Running on Ubuntu 17.10 and this update (and the last few) don’t work properly. Automatic update will fire and notify me and then download the patch but after restart does not launch the new version. If I run “check for updates” it will find the new patch again and the cycle continues. My workaround is to download the full tarball on the website but it’s kind of a pain. Love the product and will continue to do so until this is fixed or I figure out what I am doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Mac version.

    Run | Edit Configuration | Server tab

    No vertical scrollbar, so on macbook retina 13″ Before launch: … is unreachable below the screen

    OK, I know, I can increase resolution to non standard and reach the hidden options but I think vertical scrollbar will be good idea
