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.



Please report errors and feature requests to our issue tracker or discuss them in EAP users forum.

Recent Changes

IntelliJ IDEA 144.2151.16

IntelliJ IDEA 16 adds the support for RTL languages (Arabic, Hebrew) to the editor.

The IntellIJ IDEA project model now supports Gradle custom source sets. This fixes a great number of issues. Also, IntelliJ IDEA now can resolve EAR artifacts defined in your build scripts.

When you debug the code compiled without debug info, you will be provided with better name matching, and allowed to set and evaluate values for slot variables. The debugger is now aware of that your current thread is being blocked by another suspended thread, and suggests to resume it.

Merging with Git and other VCS got a little bit easer with the added by-word difference highlighting.

For those who would like to migrate their Guava code to Java 8 APIs, we’ve added a number of dedicated quick-fixes.

The Android Studio 1.4 features are now available in the IntelliJ IDEA 16 EAP.
