IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3.5: fix for SSH access to GitHub
Please welcome a new bug-fix update – IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3.5! First of all, with this update, we fixed SSH access to GitHub when using the built-in SSH executable.
As GitHub dropped support for weak cryptographic keys, it caused connectivity issues when the built-in SSH executable was used to connect to GitHub. So we’ve updated the built-in SSH executable to make it compatible with GitHub’s new stronger cryptographic standards.
We also backported this fix to our earlier IntelliJ IDEA versions:
- IntelliJ IDEA 2017.2.7 (build 172.4574.19): Download.
- IntelliJ IDEA 2017.1.6 (build 171.4694.73): Download.
- IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3.8 (build 163.15529.8): Download.
And of course, the IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1 EAP build already contains this fix.
Besides this, IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3.5 addresses the following issues:
- Fixed the issue with incorrect and unexpected Expand behavior in the Structure View: IDEA-184675.
- The Change Signature dialog now uses the system-wide color sсheme for the parameters list, instead of the editor specific color scheme: IDEA-134545.
- Eclipse compiler bundled with IntelliJ IDEA now supports Java 9 sources: IDEA-184951.
Also with v2017.3.5, we’ve updated the JDK to the 1.8.0_152-release-1024-b15 version, with the following fixes integrated:
- Unlimited cryptographic policy is enabled by default (JRE-638).
- The issue of empty Memory View in Debug session of an application running with JRE 9 was fixed (JRE-641).
