More for Remote Development

Connection improvements

We’ve revamped the deployment process which improves the remote development experience from various angles:

  • New changes speed up the deployment process itself.
  • Advanced logging now provides more insights and transparency when glitches happen.
  • CSH, FISH, and TCSH are now supported as login shells for remote hosts.


New action to generate tables of contents in Markdown files

It’s now possible to easily generate tables of contents in Markdown files based on the document headers. This new action is available from the Insert and Generate pop-up menus that you can invoke via the Alt+Insert / ⌘ N shortcut or with a right click. The IDE will insert a table of contents at the current caret position and enclose it with <!– TOC –> tags, so that you can update it later by calling the same menu.

Experimental support for Front Matter in Markdown files

We’ve introduced experimental support for YAML Front Matter headers, which can be enabled via the markdown.experimental.frontmatter.support.enable registry key.

These are the highlights for this week! As usual, you can check out a complete list of all the resolved issues in the release notes.

The major IntelliJ IDEA 2022.2 release is coming very soon – stay tuned!
