What is Early Access Program

We at JetBrains believe that making tools for developers should greatly involve listening to developers. Our Early Access Program lets development community closely participate in discussions devoted to IntelliJ IDEA and influence development planning, from early stages onwards.
Early Access Program allows you to try pre-release versions of our software to evaluate features that will be added to the next release.

Be Careful
It is important to distinguish EAP from traditional pre-release software. Please note that the quality of EAP versions may at times be way below even usual beta standards.

What is Maia?

"Maia" is the codename for IntelliJ IDEA 9.

Download IntelliJ IDEA

IntelliJ IDEA 9.0.4 has been released. You can download it from http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/download/

At the moment we don't plan to continue releasing EAP builds for 9.0.x updates.

    Background file indexing seems to be a really nice and usable feature, 'cause sometimes after crashes, IDEA startup is very sluggish due to total re-indexation.

    PHP support is nice too, great job - i've been using plugin for a short period of time, and found it useful (except no possibility to deploy files to web-server from IDE).

  2. May 26, 2009

    Is it not possible to participate in the eap without an intelij 8.0 license?

    1. May 26, 2009

      Next EAP will support the usual EAP licensing scheme.

  3. May 27, 2009

    (Sorry I'm new to IntelliJ IDEA) does this in any way impact my current 8.x installation? Also, am I only able to have 1 IDEA instance open between the 8.x and 9.x versions similar to 8.x and 8.x, or can I open both at once?

    1. May 28, 2009

      No, this doesn't impact your current installation. You can have multiple instances of IDEA running at the same time as long as they use different config and system directories. Each major release of IDEA uses separate config/system directories by default.

  4. May 29, 2009

    Hey,

    Great job on the new release of IDEA !

    I've noticed some errors in the php auto complete like "require once"... it should be spelled "require_once"...  same thing is with "include once" which should be "include_once" in the autocomplete.

    1. Jun 01, 2009

      Thank you, the issue was fixed

      1. Jun 01, 2009

        You are welcome !

        Thanks for the fast fix  

  5. May 29, 2009

    Auto-update is not enabled for the EAP builds?

    1. Jun 02, 2009

      It is. You can't upgrade from IDEA 8 to Maia EAP by a patch, but you can upgrade from a Maia EAP build to the next one.

  6. Jun 04, 2009

    What is the preferred way of letting you know of issues in the EAP releases?

    1. Jun 05, 2009

      Posting JIRA issues to http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/

  7. Jun 05, 2009

    Hi!

     Cool new features in the EAP build!

     I can't install any new plugin in the 10322 build. The context menu in the list of available plugins contains only a disabled item "Nothing here".

    1. Jun 05, 2009

      These actions should become available when the indices are built. They will be available always in one of the next EAPs

  8. Jun 09, 2009

    A minor issue, variable names, method names, type declarations etc all are bold when using default(monospace) font. If I change to any of the other fonts then code looks like how it does in IntelliJ 8.

  9. Jun 10, 2009

    Once you place your build into the background, how do you get it back to the foreground for subsequent builds?

    1. Jun 11, 2009

      Settings | Compiler | [ ] Compile in background

    How to disable Spell checker?

    1. Jun 15, 2009

      Disable the spell checker plugin.

      1. Jun 15, 2009

        Thanks

    2. Jun 15, 2009

      Like any other inspection:
      any Spelling error -> Alt-Enter -> "Edit inspection profile settings" -> disable "Spelling" group.

      1. Jun 15, 2009

        There is not "Spelling" group in inspection. Anders Holmbech's suggestion works correct.

        1. Jun 16, 2009

          There is Spelling group in inspections. You can find it by typing "spell" in the search field of the inspection settings..trtielkessuggests the easiest way to disable spell checking. 

  11. Jun 17, 2009

    Hi,

     looks like the next major release will again get many new features that will appear "just in time" for me...

     I'm currently evaluating BlazeDS for a project where it might be useful (http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/blazeds/BlazeDS/). Especially the Spring BlazeDS Integration (http://www.springsource.org/spring-flex) is interesting. I've setup the "Test Drive Samples" in IDEA 8 and just discovered that it doesn't know anything about the relationship of the artefacts... (Not very surprising, since Spring BlazeDS just saw the light...)

     So, since there's already Spring and Flex support in IDEA, I would like to see support for the connection of both worlds also...

  12. Jun 17, 2009

    I tried to find some sort of road map for Maia but I couldn't is there any information when (at least aproximate) Maia will be released and when will the cutoff date after which people buying version 8 will be eligible for free upgrade. Does anyone have an idea about those dates?

  13. Jun 22, 2009

    It looks like you are totally broken Flex in idea10361
    IDEA doesn't see many methods and properties.
    For instance in the following snippet of code, result.length is detected as error.

    var result:ArrayCollection = mock.generateUrls(entities);
    assertNotNull(result);
    assertEquals(7, result.length);

    1. Jun 22, 2009

      Could you please invalidate caches and check all used libraries / sdk have binary files (swcs) attached.

      1. Jun 23, 2009

        I've tried already. Didn't help. I read the latest comment from Max Matveev and tried to install the latest EAP from scratch but I still see the same problems.

        1. Jun 24, 2009

          Please, create JIRA issue with simple project attached and we will look for it ASAP

        2. Jun 25, 2009

          Specifically, please try to recreate Flex SDK

          1. Jun 25, 2009

            Thanks, you've commented before I write comment with the same suggestion.
            It's true, flex sdk path was broken.
            Some comments about support of FlexUnit4
            1. In previous EAP versions and in the first milestone it's not possible to configure classname and methods for tests using "suggestion list". It's necessary to type fully qualified name of class in text field.
            2. In M1 I got a problem with debugging. IDEA cannot connect to flash player. In IDEA #10338 it works fine.
            p.s. Sorry, but I don't have time to create issues in your bug tracking tool.

  14. Jun 22, 2009

    After patching 10338 to 10361 IDE becomes completely unusable (Empty "Project" panel and no "Maven Projects" panel - no way to open it, even no such button on toolbar).
    Freshly downloaded 10361 build works well - looks like problem in patcher. The 10338 build was patched from very first EAP by incremental patches.
    When patching there was warning that lib/resources_en.jar file was changed. Actually it was not.

    Checked this on MacOS, WinXP 32bit, Win Vista 64bit - behavior is the same.

    1. Jun 23, 2009

      I noticed the same problem. The patch made the ide completely unusable. Looks like it had a problem with the busy indicator in the resources file.
      "Can't find resource for bundle java.util.PropertyResourceBundle, key ide.tree.showBusyIndicator"
      I'm currently downloading the full release to see if that solves the problem.

  15. Jun 23, 2009

    Is there any additional information on the 'OSGi support' feature coming in Maia/9.0? I am very interested in using IntelliJ (versus Eclipse) for development using OSGi bundles.

    1. Sep 30, 2009

      Hey Duane,

      the OSGi-Support is basically the continuation of the Osmorc-Plugin that was there for IntelliJ 8. If you own IntellIJ8 you can download the Osmorc plugin and get an idea how and if this works with your setup. If you have specific questions you can also contact me: janthomae at janthomae dot de.

    Moving button 'scroll from source' to the obscure menu from the top of the project pane, IMHO made some tasks more cumbersome. I tend to use this button often to locate my file in the source tree and having it hidden away makes things less usable. And I don't like having it turned on permanently. Some shortcut to quickly find the file in the tree may be helpful too (may be I just don't know it?).

    My 2 cents for today.

    1. Jun 30, 2009

      You may want to try the select target menu (press ALT + F1).
      ALT + F1 followed by 1 will locate selected file in Project View.

    2. Jul 01, 2009

      That's funny, I have the exact same use case to use this button. I don't like to turn it on permanently (don't like the jumping around in the tree for certain files, e.g. working with several java files and one resource file, I don't like it that the tree scrolls to the resource part just because I change a detail in the resource file).

      So I usually turn it off and if I want to find the source location in the tree, I quickly turn it on and off again. Unfortunately this isn't really possible anymore. Using the keyboard is nice (alt-f1+1), but I would prefer a button, because in the moment I need this button, I am most certainly working with the mouse (cut & paste or browsing the code etc.)

      And that's my $0.02  to that

  17. Jul 01, 2009

    Is there a twitter account to follow for EAP updates?  Why not?

    1. Jul 02, 2009

      The official account for IDEA is @intellijidea. Right now we don't announce all EAP builds there, but we're going to fix that.

  18. Jul 01, 2009

    Would it make sense to have some menu item in the project context menu to quickly add/remove directory to the source list in the module?

    Very often I find that other team members added new directories in the module and now I need to go through project configuration dialog to add it to the source. Right click action would be so 

    much easier.

    1. Jul 02, 2009

      I suggested this feature nearly two years ago, with no success so far: http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-15041
      As Maven integration is useable now this feature is a little less important for me, but nevertheless IDEA's world does not solely consist of Maven projects.

  19. Jul 02, 2009

    The web facet is not showing up tomcat deployment configuration (It does exist and can be reached via project structure configuration)

    1. Jul 03, 2009

      The web facet doesn't contain server-specific settings. These settings should be specified in a run configuration (Run | Edit configurations).

  20. Jul 09, 2009

    I love the new directory based project settings, I'm just not sure how to force a directory based settings rather than ipr/iml based when opening pom.xml

  21. Jul 09, 2009

    IDEA 10558: FlexUnit executions problems.

    Configuration: test directory is defined, test class is selected from suggestion list.

    After test running I see "No test were found"/ "Empty test suite" error.

    It looks like IDEA has a problem with flexuinit suite application generation.

    The same project with tests are successfully executed in IDEA 10338.

    1. Jul 10, 2009

      Why are you not using the bugtracker to report bugs?

      1. Jul 10, 2009

        Because in this case problem will be solved much much faster.

        1. Jul 13, 2009

          That's not true in my experience. In the past Bugtracker bugs were handled pretty fast for my reported bugs.

          What you are doing is: You are pushing the priority of your bug by abusing this page. Let all people do this and this page will end up in a mess.

          1. Jul 13, 2009

            Probably it's true for java-related bugs, but not for flex plugin. That's why priority isn't a solution.

            They broken FlexUnit tests after 10388 and in 10588 is still broken.

            Don't worry about me, I've stopped use EAP versions because they are nightmare. All the time each EAP brakes something in my flex project.

            I don't want to spend my work time on reporting defects and trying to find workarounds in buggy EAP.

            1. Aug 21, 2009

              Aleksey,could you please open a JIRA issue and give more details on your project configuration and Flex SDK version? Are you trying to run FlexUnit4 or Flunit tests?

              1. Aug 25, 2009

                You've already fixed the problem in build 10633. So FlexUnit4 works as needed.

  22. Jul 22, 2009

    I've used up 8.1.3 evaluation period and wanted to try out Maia next.  First thing it wanted to do is to find a previous install, and I pointed it to 8.1.3 -- upon which Maia said that my evaluation has expired, and started quitting after 30 minutes.

    All notes say explicitly that one can try out Maia even if 8.1 evaluation has run out. The problem now is that even after I delete 8.1.3 and reinstall Maia, it says evaluation has expired, apparently using some mechanism to do so.  Can you please provide a way to start the regular, normal 30-day evaluation of Maia?

    Cheers,
    Alexy

    It seems that Idea indexes even directories that are excluded from the source. I filed the issue IDEA-24003 (not responded yet)
    but I wonder if enybody else has the same experience.

    It takes hours to open the project because I have pretty involved system of symlinks under my command line build directories. I excluded them
    but it still traverses them all and apparently indexes. Is there a way to disable indexing?

    1. Aug 04, 2009

      I can confirm that. I have a parallel way to build my project using ant from command shell. I excluded the target directory of the ant build but idea starts indexing after an ant build. Very annoying and time consuming.

  24. Aug 17, 2009

    Hm, where did the Tasklist Toolbar thingy vanish? I mean the pull down where I selected the current active Task Lisk. That pull down was very useful and it seems to be gone.

  25. Sep 16, 2009

    Scared to report that this latest build, 10762, breaks 100% (22 of 22) of my Grails projects.

    Lots of NoClassDefFound's with internal Groovy stuff.. and a 0% success rate compiling a single project.

  26. Sep 17, 2009

    Importing multi-module maven projects in 10762 is not working as before.
    Only one module (instead of one intellij module per maven project/module) is shown in the project view with multiple production and test source dir. This makes Intellij unusable as we have over 10 sub modules.

  27. Sep 18, 2009

    I'm unable to add any new runtime configurations for application servers. These are my steps : In the 'Run/Debug Configurations' screen I click on the '+' button and choose any application server. The gui does not respond with the expected popup but does nothing. No exceptions either. Darn, I hope there'll be a new release tonight!

  28. Sep 18, 2009

    As reported previously since about 3-400 builds (even a JIRA issue as been submitted), the maven automatic parsing of changed POM files is still annoyingly preventing a smooth edition of the file. Parsing of the file blocks temporarily the file edition.

    Why did the former option "import pom file" disappeared? Now the automatic parsing induces automatically project inconsistencies during editing these type of files.

    Anyway, this is getting really annoying!

    Cheers.

  29. Sep 18, 2009

    10762 is the most buggy release from all maia eap(from my point of view of course).

    From now I can't start unit tests from within IDEA(Exception in AppMain -> wrong version of class). Also it has problems connecting with Teamcity.

    Reverting to 10666 helped in both cases.

  30. Sep 18, 2009

    I agree - steer clear of 10762. It does not seem to manage the heap correctly. I set my init/max heap to 500M/500M, and it instead shows my initial heap size as being 254M, and it never lets it increase beyond that. When that 254M fills up, it pops up the heap full error window and asks me if I want to ignore or shutdown. If I ignore, it still never increases the heap size, and the whole app hangs... I've never seen this behavior with previous builds.

  31. Sep 20, 2009

    since 10666 it hangs (using 100% of 1 CPU) eventually and i have to kill the process.

    java version: 1.6.0_16 (64bit)

    winxp: x64 sp2

    i just disabled yjpagent from idea.exe.vmoptions to run Maia in 64bit env.

  32. Sep 20, 2009

    I've downgraded from 762 back to 666, as 762 freezes on my every half hour or so. No time to investigate what is going on. This is on Mac OS X Leopard, on a dual-processor MacPro.

  33. Sep 23, 2009

    TeamCity Plugin Incompatible
    Old versions of the TeamCity plugin are incompatible with builds 10762 or later. If you're using the TeamCity integration, you'll need to get the plugin from TeamCity 4.5.5 or the forthcoming TeamCity 5.0 EAP build.

    Is it possible to work in IDEA(build 10762 or later) + plugin from TeamCity 4.5.5, but TeamCity server is still 4.5.4?

  34. Sep 23, 2009

    No detailed release notes for this release?

    1. Sep 23, 2009

    2. Sep 24, 2009

      I think this will give you detailed release notes

      1. Sep 24, 2009

        Unfortunately the release notes now reside on YouTRACK. I find it more difficult to read those than when they were still back on JIRA.

        I am a little bit frustrated that whenever I click on a link inside the JetBrains JIRA that I am getting redirected to YouTRACK.

  35. Sep 24, 2009

    In build 10781 I get this exception every time I try to import maven projects: idea org.codehaus.plexus.PlexusContainerException. Any ideas?

  36. Sep 26, 2009

    In build 10781, load project created by previous build gave me "Couldn't load groovy facet" error.  In "Project Settings/Facets", I couldn't find the Groovy facet anymore.  When try to make the project (which works fine in previous build), I got a lot of "Warning: ... Grooyc couldn't generate stub for ..." errors.

    I'm running Intellj on MacBook OS X 10.5.8.

  37. Sep 25, 2009

    In build 10781, flex facelet configuration is empty, output directory configuration for debugging is ignoring, problems with import flex project from maven. So this build is unusable.

    1. Oct 13, 2009

      Sorry, as far as I can see Flex facet configuration is at its place and nothing was changed with output directory.

      Let's continue discussion at our forums which we track daily:
      http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/community/idea/ideacommunity

      http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/community/idea/eap

      Issues are also welcome: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/welcome

  38. Sep 26, 2009

    Can confirm what Xiaofeng Lin said two posts above. I get all the same errors. This renders my grails application more or less unworkable with build 10781 (used to work in previous builds). The grails facet is gone, all my controllers give me warnings for statements like:

    def index = {

    }

    saying "can not assign Closure to Object", Intellij can't find any of the groovy classes even though the grails framework has been specified for the project etc. I'm running on Sun JVM 6, Grails 1.1, OSX Snow Leopard, and a brand new Mac Book Pro.

  39. Sep 30, 2009

    don't you want to prepare 64bit version of yjpagent.dll and idea.exe?

    i have many difficulties by running idea in 64bit env!

    sometimes, it fill up cpu and i have to kill the process 

    1. Sep 30, 2009

      Now I use Windows 7 64bit, and it is all right.

      1. Oct 05, 2009

        Jackie!

        your last move, i mean "Shinjuku Incident" was very different and i don't like that type of movie  i should see "Big Soldier" and "The Founding of a Republic" movies and then judge about them 

        by the way, i'm using Windows XP SP2 64bit on top of 64bit version Java 1.6.0_16

        are you sure that you are using 64bit version of Java?

        in this way you can not run Idea by using idea.exe and you should disable yjpagent.dll

  40. Oct 01, 2009

    Any chance we will see 'Evaluate Expression' support for ActionScript/Flash debugging?  It doesn't appear to work correctly in the current Maia build (10781).

  41. Oct 02, 2009

    In 10781 the menu items Save Current Layout and Restore Layout (Shift-F12) are gone

  42. Oct 02, 2009

    10781 keeps on reindexing. I've got a huge project. Makes Intellij completely unusable.

    On Ubuntu 9.04 Java 1.6_15 (or so)

    1. Oct 02, 2009

      Yeah, I've been seeing that too, intermittently. Generally, when this starts happening, I go to the project module settings, and check out the "Sources" settings for any module. That's when I see that things are really wonky: The Excluded/Test Sources/Sources buttons will not be there. IDEA seems to be in a bad state.

      Restarting IDEA generally fixes it for me.

  43. Oct 07, 2009

    Please, please give us the Idea 9 Milestone 1 back. I loved this version. Unfortunately it expired. Latest EAPs are unusable. Constant reindexing, JS trying to import classes (!?!).

    Can't you just realease the Milestone One as 8.5 ? I promise to buy the 9 once it's stable


    1. Oct 07, 2009

      i had the same problem, until i deinstalled the plugin database navigator ?!

      1. Oct 16, 2009

        DB-Navigator was not upgraded yet to version 9 of IDEA. The indexing problem on startup is indeed caused by the plugin.

        An IntelliJ IDEA 9 compliant version will be released soon.

  44. Oct 09, 2009

    I really think you should relax on the expiration. 10666 is still the best version out there...

    1. Oct 09, 2009

      That's what I'm still using! Quite stable. I tried the next version and quickly retreated, and seeing the problems everyone else is having. Have not moved forward again! When does 10666 expire?

      1. Oct 14, 2009

        Is there a place where to download this version? I keep on fighting with version 10781 (turned off sync which helps a bit...)

        Dont wanna go back to 8.1 either ...

  45. Oct 15, 2009

    Please explain how to read the new numbering scheme: IU-90.94

  46. Oct 16, 2009

    Perforce issues in http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-24783 are still not resolved in IU-90.94. Makes the build unusable for me.

  47. Oct 16, 2009

    running of Maia in 64 bit environment makes me crazy

    it gets full cpu usage and i have to kill the process, i just posted 3 times and hope got a chance about the reason or how can i solve that.

    i just downloaded IU-90.94 but it hangs too 

    do i have to use 32 bit env?

    1. Oct 16, 2009

      For me it works like a charm. Here is what you have to do:

      1. Make sure you have jdk 6 x64 installed.

      2. Go to IntelliJIDEA's directory, subdirectory bin and edit idea.bat making the following changes

         a. find the line containing java.exe and change it to javaw.exe

         b. find the line containing %JAVA_EXE%, remove the quotes arround it and put start in front of it, like the line bellow:

      start %JAVA_EXE% %JVM_ARGS% -cp "%CLASS_PATH%" %IDEA_MAIN_CLASS_NAME% %*

      3. Optionaly, for improving the speed: edit the idea.exe.vmoptions file and remove the lines with -ea and -yjpagent 

      4. Launch the batch file. 

      5. This is the most important step: ENJOY

      1. Oct 17, 2009

        i did it before except putting "start" before %JAVA_HOME%!

        i also downloaded yourkit and copy/paste 64bit version of yjpagent.dll into Maia bin's directory

        but it hangs

        BTW, i'm trying by putting "start" before %JAVA_HOME% and try it one more time again, hope it works 

        1. Oct 18, 2009

          I always delete the yourkit stuff. Maybe that's your problem, you should try without it.

          1. Oct 18, 2009

            i also worked without using yourkit.

            my idea.exe.vmoptions content is:

            -Xms64m
            -Xmx512m
            -XX:MaxPermSize=150m
             

            it hangs again and i lost my work 

            i just migrated to 32bit land 

            1. Oct 18, 2009

              I am sorry to hear that

               One last thing: I am using Windows XP x64. If you are on Vista ... then we are on different boats.

              Good luck.

              1. Oct 21, 2009

                i don't like vista, i prefer xp x64, maybe i switched to any kind of linux such as ubuntu soon.

                may something wrong in my winXp x64? or in my jdk?

                my hardware/software specs are as follows:

                latitude e6500

                cpu: P9600 @2.66Ghz

                ram: 4gb

                Windows XP SP2 x64

                java 1.6.0_16  64bit edition

                 maybe something is wrong with my config?

                anybody tried Maia on 64bit env?

                1. Nov 03, 2009

                  Was hit by the same problem on my 64bit linux machine and increasing the PermGen space helped -  try to put -XX:MaxPermSize=300m in your idea.vmoptions file.

                  Hope it helps

                  1. Nov 09, 2009

                    thanks Jiri for the comment.

                    i think it's a conflict between 64bit version of java and windows xp. xp couldn't utilize the multi-core processor well! (it's old style os and just old people like me uses that  ) and java doesn't care of such old os.

                    BTW, i just switched to 7 and after some days i didn't see any crash or fully utilizing of one of my cpu's core; but, 7 is very heavy.

                    1. Nov 19, 2009

                      Wow.maxed up CPU?

                      All I had to do to get Idea to use 64bit JRE instead of packaged 32bit was: set the environment variable IDEA_JDK to point to where the 64 bit JDK is at, remove -ea from the idea.exe.vmoptions and it runs awesome under W7.

                      Not sure what processor you are using, but here with Windows 7 Ultimate I hardly see any CPU spikes. Idea 9 Beta Runs like a charm off of 64bit JRE. Perhaps something is messy with your system setup. I should not be taxing your CPU so harshly.

                      I would check your system configuration. W7 does not peg your CPU unless you have some process that doing it.

                      1. Nov 20, 2009

                        my problem solved by migrating to 64bit version of windows 7; and, now i'm using 64bit java on windows 7 without any problem.

                        in windows xp java just utilized 1 on my cpu's core; but in 7 it works better and can utilize both cores of the cpu. it means more faster running of java on 7

                        i came from 640k memory limit pc because of that i don't like such os that consumes about 1gb of memory.

                        i just switched to windows 7 because of the serious problem that i encountered on 64bit version of java on xp x64.

    Atlassian connector doesnt work anymore wih the new version number format. It crashes on IDEA startup. Does anyone know a solution to this?

      I've already reported it with the people at Atlassian

    Where can we find the release notes of these ultimate EAP builds?

    1. Oct 27, 2009

      Right now we don't have a good way to view the release notes. See http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/message/5248076#5248076 for an ugly but working solution.

      We're working with the YouTrack team to provide a better way of viewing the EAP build release notes.

    The requested URL /idea/ideaIU-90.116.dmg was not found on this server...

  51. Oct 27, 2009

    I keep getting Could not save project: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException on Mac OSX Snow Leopard, every time the application looses the focus and want's to save the project.

    Is there any solution for that

  52. Oct 27, 2009

    According to the description, ideaIU-90.116-jdk15.zip  is a Windows/Unix build with jdk15. It is not, it is a windows-only version.

    Do I need to start PHP project  below my HTTP server  DOCUMENT_ROOT path? It is very stupid. Who expose PHP code under HTTP document_root? That kind for PHP projects was good, maybe 10 or more years ago. Now, everybody keep  only simple index.php loader over there (but all PHP source is kept outside HTTP server context).

     It is also unclear how to create PHP project from scratch? There is no PHP module on the list:


     
     
    I assume I have to choose Java module, weird.

    And I also have to point to my project which has to be in context of HTTP server visibility. Weird #2.

    And PHP is not displayed on the list of available technologies (even if it is active as a plugin). Weird #3...

    It is all confusing and non intuitive...

    1. Dec 01, 2009

      Please direct all PHP-related feedback to WI issue tracker or forums, or they will be lost. http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/wi http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/community/wi/

    Few months ago, you guys used to release patch with each EAP build which was much quicker to download. Do you guys no longer release such patches? Best part was IntelliJ would automatically detect new version was available and give an option to download the patch.

    Can you help me.

  56. Jan 21, 2010

    nobody wants to make idea64.exe?

    i think its the race of 64bit machine.

    i prefer to run 64bit native executable instead of modifying and running a .bat file

    1. Mar 13, 2010

      +1 for idea64.exe

      1. Mar 13, 2010

        There is already one attached at http://jetbrains.net/devnet/docs/DOC-1185.

        1. Mar 14, 2010

          that's great!

        2. Mar 24, 2010

          unfortunately, it hangs on my  machine (100% cpu usage of one core and still working!)

          anybody tried that?

  57. Feb 10, 2010

    I've seen my CPU spinning for a while recently -- and no background tasks apparently running in IJ, but when I quit it pops up a dialog saying "finishing changed on server" check of some kind.  If I let this run, it just sits there for a LONG time, and I eventually just hit cancel and restart IJ.  Pegs one CPU at 100% when this task is running.

    I do have a slightly odd svn setup, but it does work in IJ.  I have a 'svn tunnel' configured to go across another port because I'm a couple hops away from our svn server.  So I have a ~/.subversion/config file with the following:

    [tunnels]
    mpssh = /usr/bin/ssh -l nates -p 7122

    And I run a ssh tunnel that opens a local port (7122) that connects to port 22 (ssh) on the svn server through the tunnel.  My svn URL looks like svn+mpssh://localhost/path/to/repo/on/remote/machine

    HI ... i remember (if i don't wrong) that for eap i had a license number, is it ? where i can find serial number ??

    1. Feb 19, 2010

      EAP builds for bugfix updates do not include a license. You can use a regular 30-day evaluation license or buy a commercial license.

  59. May 31, 2010

    Apologies if I missed it in the comments –

    Where can I find 64-bit EAP builds for Windows, i.e., bundled 64-bit JVM?

      We don't publish builds with bundled 64-bit JVM. If you need to use it, you can use regular .zip download with your own JVM installation.

    I have both JetGroovy and Groovy++ Support disabled. The first time I launched the 95.146 EAP build, I got an error message:

    Problems found loading plugins:
    Plugin "org.intellij.groovy.gpp" was not loaded: required plugin "org.intellij.groovy" is disabled.

    Come to think of it, I do not recall the Groovy++ Support plugin - new for this release? I had JetGroovy disabled, which would account for the error.

    Can you make this smarter, and recognize that the user has disabled the dependency on first start up?

    Please, fix content-types on your sites! most binaries are opens as HTML pages rather than download will be started.

      This seems to be your local problem (possibly caused by a buggy antivirus). I haven't seen such a problem on any of the computers from which I downloaded IDEA builds.

    We are wondering about the significance if "95" in the version number; what does it mean ? Our best guess is "dog years" since IE6 should have been deprecated

    I've been seeing an issue where the little spinner at the top-right of the project tree just keeps spinning and spinning. This wouldn't be such an issue, except that when this starts to happen the 'scroll from source' button stops working. I will admit that our project is a mess, but this would be great to fix.

    Using 95.474, the UI is stuck. I opened a project, and I'm not logged into svn, clicked on the "1 notification pending" icon in the lower right, now there's the notifications dialog open with the "not logged into svn" message, and in the upper right of the screen there's also the same notification with a big "X" to close it, like a Growl notification. I can't click on either of them, or click on anything else.... the UI still repaints when I move a window over it, but everything is stuck.

      Can I see a screenshot please?
      What dialog is opened? "Notifications?" it should have the hyperlink "Click to fix". Isn't it clickable?

    When do you plan to release the final IntelliJ IDEA 9.0.4 ?
