  1. Don't forget the align "fields/variables groups" feature.

    1. Please report bugs to our issue tracker:

      1. After restarted,it works again.

  3. Jay

    I don't know where's the good place to ask this, but when to expect Ruby plugin for IDEA X?

    1. Jay, the best place to ask about Ruby support is at the dedicated forum:

      We plan to release Ruby plugin soon. Most likely with the next RubyMine 2.5 EAP, later this week or early next week.

  4. I'm missing Android on the list above.
    What I really would like to see to improve the current Android support in IDEA, is a UI designer for Android.

    Currently I'm using Eclipse for the visual UI design of Android layouts. The UI designer in Eclipse leave a lot to desire, so there are plenty of room for improvements.

    For example: populating lists with dummy data, attaching row layouts to lists, support for designing dialogs and menues, support for designing user defined widgets, visual design of shape drawables (including gradients) and more.

    1. Jens,

      Thanks for the ideas. The best way would be to create feature requests in our issue tracker:

      Or, to vote for them if they are already there.
