- The keystrokes aren’t lost during freezing anymore: IDEA-186636.

- We’ve fixed the issue with broken JPS that inhibits all non-gradle Android builds: IDEA-189170.
- Facet settings stored externally are now loaded by the build process: IDEA-189112.
IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1.1 comes with support for annotationProcessorPaths option in the maven-compiler-plugin 3.5 for external dependencies.
We’ve also updated the bundled Kotlin plugin to v1.2.31. Check out the v1.2.31 change log to see all the improvements.
