Early Access Program

IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2.1 EAP is out!

We released IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2 just yesterday, and today we are ready to open an Early Access Program for the first bug-fix update of v2018.2! Grab the freshly made IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2.1 EAP build from the Confluence website or, via Toolbox App, or if you’re running IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2 – install the patch.

Please note that this EAP build requires an active license for IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.

For a start, now when you work with a Gradle project and choose the Use gradle ‘wrapper’ task configuration option, IntelliJ IDEA doesn’t modify any wrapper-related files on project synchronization or import.

We are continuing our work on the Groovy 3.0 support, and with this build we’ve now added support for: an enhanced classic Java-style for loop, multi-assignment in combination with a for loop, and Java-style array initialization.

We’ve also fixed a couple of other bugs worth mentioning:

  • Structure panel now shows correct data again: IDEA-183801
  • New files are shown in the package view: IDEA-195578

Check out the release notes for the complete list of changes

Try IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2.1 EAP and don’t forget to share your feedback with us! As always on: issue tracker, discussion forum, Twitter!

Happy developing!

    The rendering artifacts I was seeing (Windows 7, JetBrains JRE) with the 2018.2 release seem to have been fixed in this EAP build.

    Thanks 🙂

    It seems that refresh debugging with gradle bootRun in IDEA 2018.2 wouldn’t kill java process.

      This one is really aggravating…forcing me to manually kill processes.
