IntelliJ IDEA 2019.1.1 Preview is available!

Posted on by Zlata Kalyuzhnaya

Last week we released IntelliJ IDEA 2019.1, and today we are ready to give you a preview of the first bug-fix update for it. Take the IntelliJ IDEA 2019.1.1 Preview build for a ride!

You can download this build from the Confluence page, or update to it using the Toolbox App. Please note that this build requires an active IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate license.

This Preview build brings with it lots of important bug-fixes, performance and usability improvements, and regression fixes. Let’s take a detailed look at what it has in store for you.

There are a couple of notable fixes related to the Terminal integrated into this build. To start with, it’s now possible to switch back from the Terminal tool window to the editor with the Escape shortcut. Also, the confirmation dialog is not shown anymore when you try to close a Terminal without running processes. And if you use IntelliJ IDEA with JBR 11, we have a wonderful bug fix for you — now CTRL-C in Terminal works.

For a while now, the IDE has provided the option to paste the names and values of the Environment Variables together into the Run Configuration dialog. Unfortunately, it was not possible to paste just the Name or just the Value. That’s now fixed..

IntelliJ IDEA 2019.1 added a new ‘Run to mouse pointer’ mouse gesture. In v2019.1.1, we’ll make it a little more customizable by adding an option which allows you to enable/disable this new feature.

Updating plugins in an offline environment now works with the new marketplace and custom plugin repository.

The IDE correctly creates a branch when you open a task with the “create branch” option enabled.

And NotNull instrumentation doesn’t fail with JDK 12 preview mode.

We’ve also fixed a couple of unpleasant regressions, such as the ‘Start Failed’ dialog which happened on closing the import settings dialog, and a missing popup of the ‘Injected Language’ feature.

With IntelliJ IDEA 2019.1.1 Preview we’ve updated the bundled Kotlin plugin to v1.3.21-release-IJ2019.1-3 and with this new version we have fixed a couple of important fixes, such as: KT-30117, KT-29427, KT-30137, and KT-9618.

For the full list of changes, please refer to the release notes.

In other news, we have updated both JetBrains Runtime 8 and JetBrains Runtime 11.

JBR 8 was updated to 1.8.0_202-release-1483-b44, which among other changes, integrated the fix which restored the fonts rendering on macOSX .The full release notes are available here.

JBR 11 was updated to 11.0.2+9-b159.34, and with this version, we were able to fix issue JBR-1144 on macOS and now you can delete with the backspace the type accented characters. The full release notes are available here.

    Thank you for the great effort. I was expecting something very important for my working cycle. I guess you haven’t fixed it yet. It is The Compound run configurations for debugging regression.

      Hi I’m not from Jet Brains but there are still open questions in this issue. Maybe you could try to provide more informations for the devs to allow them to fix it.

      Best Regards.

    I’ve just experienced this in PyCharm “it’s now possible to switch back from the Terminal tool window to the editor with the Escape shortcut”, and for me it is a very annoying feature. I use Vi key bindings, so I am constantly using esc-k or similar to interact with my terminal history.

    However, now this jumps me back to my editor window and cause numerous k or other letters to be written to the editor.

    I would suggest not using the escape key as default for this feature because I imagine Vi key binding to hardly be uncommon.

    Is it possible to disable this feature? Or change the key binding?

    Does JBR 11.0.2+9-b159.34 also contain the MacOS font rendering fix? Or is it only available in JBR 8?

    Hi!
    Is there a reason the 2019.1 version doesn’t compile a project based on java 7? I compiles with the latest 2018.x.x version.

    The error is the one below.
    Error:java: Compilation failed: internal java compiler error

    Thanks!

      same problem here!

        Thanks, Tobi!

        Could anyone at JetBrains say anything about this issue?

        Thanks!

            I noticed that the issue isn’t the same. At least the error I encountered was:

            Error:java: Compilation failed: internal java compiler error

          • Claudiu says:

            And I don’t use IDEA on java 11, which is the build that issue is reported against.

              Please create the issue at the YouTrack, sharing the sample project where issue is reproduced will be very helpful. Please also mention IDEA version and build, used JDK and Language Level. Thank you
