IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2.4 Update is Out!

A new bug-fix update IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2.4, is now available for download. Feel free to download the update from our website, or by using the Toolbox App or you can update by installing the patch from the IDE.

This update fixes dozens of issues, and as usual, you can refer to the release notes for the full list of changes. In this post, we’ll just mention the most notable fixes we’ve made.

For starters, the IDE loads the correct context when switching between tasks which are configured with branches when the “Restore workspace on branch switching ” option is enabled in Preferences / Settings | Version control | Confirmation.

We’ve also fixed a couple of regressions. Now the IDE creates a process with the correct version of the Gradle wrapper. Git clone operations are also now listed in the log.

Furthermore, the IDE doesn’t show Android scope in the Project tool window for non-Android projects anymore, and as for Android-specific actions they aren’t enabled in non-Android projects.

We have also fixed the IntelliJ IDEA freezes.

That’s it for today – update now! And remember your feedback is very welcome: Twitter, issue tracker.

Happy Developing!
