      I was wrong. Well it doens’t matter.

        Edoardo, you can download the first EAP build of
        IJ 2018.3 https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/nextversion/

            Wow! What is your secret? Where did you find it? 🙂

            • Edoardo Luppi says:

              September 5, 2018

              Not a secret 😛
              When a release note is published usually after a couple of hours files can be found on your download server. The URL pattern is always the same. Also the release date is on par with 2017.3 eap.

                When a release version is choosen to be published you can see a branch has been created on the IDEA repository over GitHub, so you know which release to choose. Today I finished earlier at work so I fiddled around.

    Why did you guys change buttons around and remove the “+” button to add a new change list in the Version Control tab, hiding it under a menu now? The lack of colors on the buttons prevent them from standing out and you’re making people get used to new buttons for no reason.

    • Edoardo Luppi says:

      You can use this plugin https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugin/10777-legacy-icon-pack-for-intellij-2018-2-
      It will allow choosing between IDEA 2016 and 2018.1 icons.

        Perfect!! Thanks so much

      Various actions were removed from toolbars based on usage statistics. And the mentioned action is not the most popular way of creating changelist – instead, Move to another changelist is usually used, with a shortcut, or from other controls.

      BTW, Local changes toolbar is configurable, so if you need you could move the Add New Changelist action out of the group.

      • Lil Sebastian says:

        September 6, 2018

        How can I move it out of the group? I tried clicking and dragging out of the menu and right-clicking, can’t see any option to do so.

        Thanks 🙂

        • Edoardo Luppi says:

          September 6, 2018

          Settings > Menus and toolbar > Local changes toolbar. You can remove the menu voice under Changelist and then add it after the Refresh line.
          You can even bind it to a shurtcut.

    I use Mac. Since 2018.2.1,though the IDEA supports TouchBar,but the KeyMap `Option+Enter` ,which described as “show Intention Action” ,is not in use.When I press the KeyMap `Option+Enter`,the TouchBar shows Something. How can I solve this?

    Why some updates allow the Idea to patch itself and some (like this one) require me to download a full install and do it from scratch?
    Is this somehow related to my environment? Or affects everyone, just depends on the way the release was prepared? The previous minor release was self patching…

    Why is this https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-191256 still not fixed? This is ridiculous that you don’t give such issues a higher priority. People actually waste a lot of time because of the inability of the IDE to flush changes properly to disk when context switching!

    Since 2018.2.1 build, when debug Java It’s can’t rerun, previous process not terminate.
    So end up with port already in use (need to kill process manually)

    • Zlata Kalyuzhnaya says:

      September 17, 2018

      This is an unknown issue and we’ll highly appreciate if you’ll create an issue in our bug-tracker https://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/IDEA with more details including OS, and logs. thank you in advance

      • Jwaiwit says:

        September 17, 2018

        I just able to make it terminate by check at “single instance” option in “run configuration”.

        – is this new introduced option?
        – since only single instance, can ommit to spawn new run process tab?
