IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3.5: fix for SSH access to GitHub

Please welcome a new bug-fix update – IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3.5! First of all, with this update, we fixed SSH access to GitHub when using the built-in SSH executable.

As GitHub dropped support for weak cryptographic keys, it caused connectivity issues when the built-in SSH executable was used to connect to GitHub. So we’ve updated the built-in SSH executable to make it compatible with GitHub’s new stronger cryptographic standards. Continue reading

What’s Groovy about IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1?

IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1 is coming! With dozens of incredible new features and improvements added already; it’s time to put the icing on the cake and tell you about our enhanced support for Groovy, read on!

First of all, the ability to refactor Groovy files and Groovy modules has been extended. Now you have a new action, that might be very useful when you want to keep your code in Groovy and at the same time benefits from the static compilation. To save you from a lot of time migrating the existing Groovy code, this new refactoring annotates every groovy class in the scope with the @CompileStatic annotation. Also, the IDE will apply fixes with a view to keeping code correct.

This new refactoring action is available from the context menu in the Refactor | Convert to @CompileStatic.

IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1 EAP: inline external annotations, Java Compiler enhancement and more

A new IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1 EAP build is here now and it’s ready for your assessment! Download the latest build from our website, or update via the Toolbox App.

As you may already know, IntelliJ IDEA provides an ability to annotate your code via annotations.xml files, which are stored outside of your source code. These external annotations are especially useful when direct annotation of the source code is not possible (library classes). IntelliJ IDEA shows the @ icon in the gutter near the externally annotated code. With the upcoming IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1, this functionality has been extended and now the IDE shows these external annotations inline in your code.
