What’s New in IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 EAP8?

The new IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 EAP build focuses on small fixes and improvements to various parts of the IDE. The new build comes with fixes for several regressions in Gradle support, polishes the Services tool window, fixes memory leaks, improves support for SpringBoot 2.2, improves Docker terminal, introduces the new Kubernetes View, and includes changes from Android Studio 3.5. Give it a try.

You’ll find the full list of all the issues that have been addressed in our release notes.

As usual, the EAP builds for IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate are free to use but expire 30 days from the build date.

Better Docker terminal

We have refined our Docker support, and now the terminal inside a Docker container provides the same capabilities as the embedded terminal inside the IDE. The IDE now correctly sends resize commands to a container in response to terminal resize. Previously, on the long command, the Docker terminal didn’t start a new line but would overwrite the current line instead.

Kubernetes View

There are also some improvements to our Kubernetes support. Now in the Services tool window, the IDE provides cluster browsing and pod log viewing.


Please note that you need to first install the Kubernetes plugin. This plugin is only compatible with IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.

Also, this EAP build of IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 includes all changes from Android Studio 3.5.

Give the new build a try and share your feedback with us here in the comments, in our issue tracker, or on Twitter.

Happy Developing!

    Still not available via Toolbox.

    Unfortunately, starting with 2019.3 (all EPA builds until now) throw a lot of errors working with play! framework (v1) projects. I already submitted several bug reports, but I can still see the same errors in EAP 8 (everything seems to work as expected though).

    IDE Fatal Errors:

    in plugin Groovy:

    java.lang.Throwable: Unexpected element. Element: Specific implicit variable: foo; class: class com.intellij.play.utils.processors.PlayImplicitVariablesFactory$2$1$1; text: foo
    See org.jetbrains.plugins.groovy.lang.resolve.NonCodeMembersContributor docs.

    and in plugin Java:

    Reference element is not the same element for which references were queried
    java.lang.RuntimeException: Element: com.intellij.psi.impl.source.PsiPlainTextFileImpl; reference: com.intellij.play.references.PlayControllerActionPsiReferenceProvider$ActionReference; reference element: com.intellij.psi.impl.source.tree.PsiPlainTextImpl

    How do you go about adding a Kubernetes connection to something other than Google/CloudFoundry? I have a cluster elsewhere, and I don’t see where I’d go to configure a connection to that cluster or insert my kubeconfig information, or anywhere where I might be able to configure the connection outside of the ‘Add Service’ menu.

    Thank you.
