Early Access Program

IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1.2 EAP is here!

Today we are happy to announce the start of the Early Access Program for our next bug-fix update, IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1.2. Download the new EAP build from our confluence page, or get this update via Toolbox App.

Note that this EAP build requires an active subscription to IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.

Please check for updates manually if you are using v2018.1 and not using Toolbox App to manage your updates. You can use the Check for updates action to receive the latest update.

With this new build, we’ve made several improvements to the debugger, which can now evaluate complex expressions with JDK 9. Also, Stream debugger now works with JDK 9.

Among other things, this build brings several important fixes:

  • Fixes a high memory consumption of git indexing for shallow clones: IDEA-178016
  • Fixes the extremely wide, not-resizable “Commit Changes” dialog in case of a long error message: IDEA-141136

We’ve also updated the bundled JDK to 1.8.0_152-release-1136-b29. The following important fixes were integrated:

  • Performance has been improved for Version Control Log scrolling: JRE-690
  • Horizontal grey lines in every window in IntelliJ IDEA were eliminated: JRE-711

Please see the complete list of changes in IntelliJ IDEA release notes and JRE release notes.

As always, your bug reports are very welcome in our issue tracker!

Happy Developing!

    IntelliJ is completely unusable until you fix this bug:


    It is present in 2018.1, and it’s still there in 2018.1.2.

    Given what you charge for Ultimate licenses, how do you justify leaving basic editing broken for months? Your engineers ask for CPU snapshots to “investigate”, yet when provided with them they do nothing.

      Hi Jon, We are sorry for that. The new 1.8.0_152-release-1136-b29 JDK version was aimed to fix this problem, and apparently, it doesn’t. As we have the log and CPU snapshots for previous v1J 2018.1.1, we kindly ask you to provide new CPU snapshots and idea.log for IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1.2 EAP. Also, a screencast will be a big help in understanding a nature of this bug and fixing it finally! Thank you!

    “Perhaps this problem is specific to the Mac version? ”

    All 2018.X versions have been unusable for me due to IDEA-185487.
    It looks like it doesn’t happen to other users though, but I can’t find what is so specific to my setup, or to fix it to work with Idea 2018 …
