In other news, the JDK has been updated to 1.8.0_152-release-1248-b19, with the following fixes integrated:

    Was there a UI change in “Find In Path”? It is now tabbed (Tab “Options” and Tab “Preview”).

  2. Douglas SIX says:

    Same behaviour here. I prefer the previous one.

  3. Knoobie says:

    Was there a regression with the “find everywhere section”?

    Everytime I try to open a file with keyboard only (type stuff, arrow down and press enter to open the file -> dialog closed and no file is opened)

    Latest version
    OS Ubuntu

    Can’t open my projects after this update.
    Even tried a newly created project (which I created 5 min before updating).
    Cant add files to the project. They never appear in the project file list.
    Time to downgrade.
