Zlata Kalyuzhnaya

We are another step closer to the release, because as of today, we are ready to offer you the release candidate for IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3!

Just to give you a quick heads up! This build requires a license for IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.

This new build adds some final finishing touches to the release. We’ve updated JetBrains Runtime 11 to v11.0.4+10-b520.11 to fix, among other issues, the font rendering issues with non-HiDPI displays on macOS Catalina.

You’ll find the full list of addressed issues in the IDE and JBR release notes.

Please report any problems you encounter to our issue tracker, so we can sort them out before the final release.

Happy Developing!

    Unfortunately this release is still unusable for people who use runConfigurations which start Spring Boot, Tomcat or other application servers.
    I can imagine that this are quite a lot of users!

    For some reason, the splash screen freezes after the progress bar reaches the end.

    IDEA itself does not start, only the splash screen remains frozen.

    I just updated it and it stuck on welcome screen showing recent projects and create/import/open buttons but choosing one will cause idea screen flash in background and go right back to the welcome screen. I am suck and can’t work 🙁

    It looks like IDETalk plugin was causing issues. I disabled it and it Loaded fine

    For me is an issue blocking upgrade.

    Although unannounced I can see there have been some improvements to the HTTP client (like “run all requests in a file”. Please keep at it, this tool has so much (mostly unfulfilled) potential.

    Just recently we were trying to run a HTTP request in a cycle to observe random performance issues and it was a big disappointment to find out that there is no way to do that with the HTTP client requests – it’s not possible to script them, not possible to run them from shell script, not possible to export them to curl. It feels like a dead end.

    I was expecting this RC will be found by “automaticlly check update” for “Beta Releases or Public Previews” but this is not the case.
