Removing log4j from the IntelliJ Platform
As you no doubt know, several major vulnerabilities have been recently discovered in the version 2 of the log4j library. As we have previously announced, the IDEs based on the IntelliJ Platform are not affected by this vulnerability, because they use a patched version of log4j 1.2 with all network-related code removed. Versions 1 and 2 of the log4j library are two completely different codebases with incompatible APIs, and migrating from one to the other is a non-trivial endeavor with unclear benefits. Despite that, some automated security tools still flag our use of an “old” version of log4j a

Log4j Vulnerability and Third-party Plugins on JetBrains Marketplace
In the wake of the Remote Code Execution CVE-2021-44228 vulnerability in the popular Java logging library log4j, we have been checking third-party plugins distributed via JetBrains Marketplace. Because of how many IntelliJ-based plugins there are, we initially used API Watcher to check what plugins and which of their exact versions used anything from log4j. We have temporarily hidden all plugin versions in which we detected any use of log4j. We understand that such a check can produce some false positives. But we’d rather play it extra safe and draw the attention of many plugin aut

Revamping Plugins #3 – Migrating from DevKit to the Gradle build system
The Revamping Plugins series is about sharing the experience of updating outdated plugins to align with the latest IntelliJ Platform SDK guidelines. We hope this series will help you better understand how this is done and the tools JetBrains provides to simplify the process. The IntelliJ Platform allows creating plugins and themes that extend the base functionalities of IntelliJ-based IDEs in many ways, such as adding language support, enhancing the build system and debugger, or simply changing the user interface. Initially, it was possible to create such plugins using the JetBrains Proj
