IntelliJ IDEA 2021.1.1 Is Available

The release of IntelliJ IDEA 2021.1 didn’t go quite as we expected. Though we delivered a lot of major long-awaited features, there were several issues.

First and foremost, we want to sincerely apologize for the issues with our IDE and any lost time it has caused. We used the same rigorous QA procedures we usually do for this release, but unfortunately, they turned out to be insufficient. We are updating the procedures and adding automated tests for the next major release to avoid this situation happening again in the future.

We appreciate that you’ve reached out and helped us get to the root cause of the critical issues with indexes and Maven refresh. IntelliJ IDEA 2021.1.1 solves them. We’ll address the crash issues in our next bug-fix release, as they require more thorough investigation and effort.

Please upgrade to IntelliJ IDEA 2021.1.1 as soon as possible. You can get the new version from inside the IDE, with the Toolbox App, or using snaps for Ubuntu. It is also available for download from our website.

Other fixes that this version brings include:

  • Fixed the problem with corrupted indexes that caused Find In Files to show no results. [IDEA-266391]
  • Fixed Maven dependencies. [IDEA-255594]
  • Gradle Run Configurations now use the correct working directory. [IDEA-265203]
