Spring Kotlin References in @Value-annotation

Here is the new blog post on Kotlin and Spring support in IntelliJ IDEA.
The Spring Framework supports reading values from different kinds of sources using the `@Value` annotation. Completion, reference navigation, and folding property names with their values is now supported for Kotlin in IntelliJ IDEA:

ValueFoldingYou can also use SpEl in the `@Value` annotation:ValueInSpelOn renaming of the bean properties all of the references are then properly updated:ValueAnnotationAndRenamingSo you can comfortably work with the `@Value` annotation in Spring-Kotlin projects with IntelliJ IDEA.

There are more posts about Kotlin with Spring support in IntelliJ IDEA coming. Please stay tuned!
