Release Notes


  • The new build finally fixes a very annoying issue with Case-only renames in Git for Windows and OS X. 
  • Since this build we officially support font ligatures. To enable ligatures, go to the Settings → Editor → Colors & Fonts → Font, choose a font that supports ligatures, e.g. FiraCodeHaskligMonoid or PragmataPro (the font has to be installed) and select the Enable font ligatures option.
  • Also we’ve recently reworked the way IntelliJ IDEA displays notifications: the popups are now displayed in the rightmost bottom corner (next to the Event Log tool window icon), more compact, and grouped by the subsystem they came from.
  • The last but not least, we've added a new action called Set Background Image. Give the IDE a custom look by choosing a background image for the editor and the IDE frame.

IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2 162.426.1

  • General
    • A new inspection that warns you when you instantiate new objects inside equalshashCode,compareTo or methods. This helps to avoid significant performance problems when, for example, objects of classes with such constructs are added to Set or Map, where these methods will be frequently invoked.
    • Coding assistance for Regex has been extended with better error reporting and added code completion for named group references.
    • The Inspection tool window has been redesigned for better ergonomics: now code location for each of the problems is displayed along with controls to either apply a quick-fix or suppress inspection.
  • Version control
    • In case a file has been changed after you created a path, and IntelliJ IDEA cannot find its original revision (e.g. it lost after Rebase, or its format is not supported), IntelliJ IDEA will now prompt you to apply the changes from patch using a Merge-like dialog. Also, in theApply Patch dialog, before applying a patch you can compare it to your local version using the Show Diff action. While comparing, you can edit your the local version.
    • The Git Log can now display commit details for several selected commits (this works for Gitand Mercurial).
