IntelliJ IDEA 2018.3.2 is released!

We’ve just finished putting together a new minor update for you! IntelliJ IDEA 2018.3.2 is here with several major changes:

  • Fixed the issue with the IDE freezes when searching in Hebrew: IDEA-199367.
  • Fixed the regression that causes builds to fail if the paths contain symlinks: IDEA-202775
  • Fixed the issue that causes a project update over SSH to fail if there are lots of repositories: IDEA-203005.
  • The library index now updates when JAR files are replaced: IDEA-187185.
  • Fix for an issue with the Gradle test runner: IDEA-203517.
  • Several fixes for the Quick Documentation popup: IDEA-203713IDEA-198297.
  • Fixed the issue causing the IDE to not finish scanning files for index: IDEA-202979.
  • Fixed the regression that caused the autocompletion list to move: IDEA-201036.

We’ve also updated the bundled JBR version to v1.8.0_152-release-1343-b26, and with this new version we’ve been able to fix several important issues:

  • Fixed a regression to make it possible to enter backslash with Japanese keyboard: JRE-1057.
  • Fixed the issue with redundant files remaining after running a fast test process: JRE-1061.

    After update all my Spring Boot projects stop compiling with “Exception encountered during context initialization – cancelling refresh attempt: org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanDefinitionStoreException: Failed to parse configuration class [appname]; nested exception is class path resource [] cannot be opened because it does not exist”.

      Ok, I found out what the problem was – Gradle projects needed refresh after IDEA update. Never happened with any update before.

        Thank you for the information. We plan to improve the migration of Gradle/Maven projects between IDE upgrades. Please feel free to follow related issue

        I had the same problem. Intellij kept saying “Failed to auto-configure a DataSource”, but opening the Gradle window (View -> Tool Windows -> Gradle) and clicking the refresh button solved it.

    Same problem with non spring projects. It seems it does not see resource files. Refreshing gradle project fixes it.

      I’ve got same issue when I edit DB data using Database tool (MySQL). It is “Scanning files to index…” after every click. It’s pretty much unusable in this release.

        MattheW, could you please file an issue at with IDE log folder zipped (Help | Show Log in …) and description of the steps you perform when it happens? Thank you.
        Btw if you have any files with generated content in project (output of scripts, logs etc), it’s better to exclude them. Try also disabling 3rd plugins.

    I don’t know what happened to my previous comment. I switched back to 2018.3.1 and the indexing problem went away.

    I get constant indexing too and switched back to 2018.3.1 and problem solved.
    So, the last release contains a bug about indexing.
