IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2 RC2 is here!

Time is flying by, we are already just a few steps away from the release of IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2! The second Release Candidate of IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2 is out! And as usual, you can download it from the website, update via Toolbox App, or use patches for the in-product update if you’re using the previous RC build.

Just a quick heads up! This build requires an active subscription to IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate, or alternatively, you can use a trial license.

This build comes with improvements in the MacBook Touch bar support. Firstly, we’ve added the “Add configuration” button in the Run/Debug configuration dialog.

Also, there is a new Welcome dialog layout:

We have also fixed a couple of other issues in MacBook Touch bar support: the “More items” button now works in Run/Debug configurations dialog, there have been some small usability improvements in the debugger layout, and more all of which you can find in the release notes.

We value your feedback a lot; please continue to share your thoughts and suggestions: discussion forum, issue tracker, Twitter or here in the comments!

Stay tuned, or you might miss the announcement of the release of IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2!
