IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2.1 EAP is out!

Zlata Kalyuzhnaya

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.
