Today we have released IntelliJ IDEA 12.1.4 EAP 129.549, a preview build for the upcoming update. The new IntelliJ IDEA build can run on latest JDK8 beta releases and supports latest Android SDK tools r22.
There is new EAP build of IntelliJ IDEA 12.1.3 available for download. The complete list of changes can be found in Release Notes. We welcome your feedback on IntelliJ IDEA 12.1.3 EAP at our discussion forum and with bug reports in the issue tracker.
Two bits of exciting news for IntelliJ IDEA’s users today. The first one is that the upcoming release of IntelliJ IDEA 12.1.2 is available for early preview. The new build brings many enhancements and bugfixes.
Good news for all who use Gradle in their projects. The newest update of IntelliJ IDEA brings new features and enhancements for the Gradle integration.
Now IntelliJ IDEA provides you additional configuration settings:
Use gradle wrapper — The IDE automatically detects if the linked gradle project is wrapper-aware and uses it for refreshing the project and running tasks;
Use auto-import — Every project structure change is automatically picked up by the IDE on Gradle project refresh (e.g. when a new library is added/removed at build.gradle, it’s added/removed at the IDE as well). Note, that user-defined project changes are not automatically overwritten. E.g. when a user manually adds a library dependency to a module it’s not automatically removed during the auto-import.
Service directory path — Allows to specify a location where Gradle stores downloaded library binaries. Useful for Windows’ users who may want to tune their anti-virus software.
Each year we celebrate Spring by rolling out a fresh update for the latest big release, with bugfixes and usability enhancements. This spring is no exception, so today we are excited to announce that IntelliJ IDEA 12.1 is finally out and available for download.
As you remember, IntelliJ IDEA 12 brought major improvements such as support for Java 8, Play 2, Android UI designer, a new compiler with double the performance, more database tools, and of course Darcula, the new dark look and feel. This update improves on most of these features and adds some new ones as well.
Support for JavaFX 2, Oracle’s new rich client platform for Java, now includes complete support for FXML markup, custom CSS, code completion, navigation and search, refactorings, packaging tools, and integration with SceneBuilder.
