IntelliJ IDEA 2021.3 Release Candidate Is Out!
Our major release is right around the corner, and our team is adding the final touches to the product. The EAP is almost over and we’d like to thank all of you who have participated and who have shared your valuable feedback on the updates. Your contribution makes a difference!
To use this build, you need to have an active subscription to IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.
With the major release approaching, now is the perfect time to familiarize yourself with the critical updates that v.2021.3 will bring:
Remote development (Beta)
This feature allows software engineers to connect to a remote machine running an IDE backend and work on a project located there as if it were on their local machine.
Troubleshooting IDE issues
Check out the new, faster way to diagnose and fix issues with your IDE. The new Repair IDE… action is available from the File menu.
Debugger updates for Kotlin
We’ve made two notable updates for debugging Kotlin code: the Smart Step Into action and inline stack frames. The Smart Step Into action highlights the lines where you can step inside the chained method calls and lambdas and allows you to stop at any child function included in a given call.
The debugger can detect Kotlin inline functions and display inline function calls in the stack trace panel.
Constant conditions inspection for Kotlin
The new Constant conditions inspection for Kotlin helps IntelliJ IDEA report non-trivial conditions and values that are statically known to be always true, false, null, or zero. It works the same way as the similar inspection for Java.
If you notice any bugs, please report them to our issue tracker.
IntelliJ IDEA 2021.3 is coming very soon – we’ll keep you posted!
