IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 is Here!
What makes a better Spring present than a fresh update for your favorite Java IDE? We’ve worked hard this year to make it happen. Go ahead and grab IntelliJ IDEA 14.1, packed with new features, improvements, and bug-fixes. Most parts of the IDE have been enhanced in one way or another: We’ve added debugger capabilities to the built-in decompiler introduced in IntelliJ IDEA 14.

Faster Groovy Compilation in IntelliJ IDEA 14.1
Compiling Groovy code is typically slower than compiling Java code, but in 14.1 we took a swing at speeding it up. First, we're now supporting Groovy-Eclipse compiler that handles Java and Groovy simultaneously, which brings a noticeable performance gain. So, if you're compiling your projects in Eclipse, you might want to give this new integration a try. Just go to the Java Compiler settings, select Groovy-Eclipse, and point to the groovy-eclipse-batch.jar. Remember that is should be the same version as your Groovy distribution. (more…)

First of all, in addition to the list of tasks you now can also see project dependencies along with their scope: Here you can notice that the tasks are now grouped by their type for easier access.

IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 Ships with Nextgen of Code Generation
IntelliJ IDEA already has impressive code generation capabilities: it can create getters and setters, equals(), hashCode(), toString(), and other methods, some of which are really simple to generate, and some are quite not. That's why the toString() method generator included the support for Velocity templates that could be modified and tailored to your needs. In IntelliJ IDEA 14.1 we're extending this support to all other generated methods. To fully support this new feature, the Template Editor has been upgraded with complete Velocity coding assistance. Note that this particul
