What’s new in IntelliJ IDEA 2018.3 EAP 5?
Another IntelliJ IDEA 2018.3 EAP with more new goodies is now available for download! Let’s review what is inside the fresh EAP build!
For a start, the upcoming IntelliJ IDEA 2018.3 updates Git multi-repository projects significantly faster than before. Previously, the IDE could only fetch repositories one by one. Now, the IDE fetches all git repositories in the project in parallel during the project update.
As you know, in IntelliJ IDEA it is possible to view diff of the latest commit that touched a particular line – by calling Show Diff from Annotation context menu. Now, it is possible to get to the menu using keyboard only – invoke the VCS Operations pop-up (Ctrl-V on macOS /Alt+` on Windows and Linux) and choose Annotated Line | Show Diff, or whatever action or option you need there.
We’ve also added Diff Preview to the File History tab of the Version Control tool window.
We’ve also added a handy quick-fix to delete an unreachable switch branch that has been reported by the “Constant conditions & exceptions” inspection. By the way, if there are several unreachable branches, and you want to delete all of them at once, you can use the “Fix all ‘Constant conditions & exceptions’ problems in file” action.
Spring MVC model variables work with Kotlin now.
Also, JDK has been updated to 1.8.0_152-release-1343-b3 x86_64 – the following notable fixes were integrated:
- Rendering engine has been upgraded to Marlin 0.9.3 ( JRE-958 )
- The critical issue with focus in some dialogs has been fixed ( JRE-973 )
- A partial solution for supporting Hindi and Thai characters has been introduced ( JRE-928 )
Please see the release notes for a list of all changes.
