IntelliJ IDEA 2018.3.3 is Released!

A new bug-fix update, IntelliJ IDEA 2018.3.3, is here! We recommend that you update your IDE to this latest version as it has some changes worth getting.

As you may already know, the Raw String Literals (JEP 326) feature has been withdrawn from JDK 12, which is why we’ve changed the way it is supported in IntelliJ IDEA. Existing Java 12 projects will be automatically migrated to the latest released version of Java, Java 11. If you’d like to still have support for Raw String Literals inside the IDE, set the project language level to ‘X- Experimental features’.
