Plugin Dev with IDEA 12.1.6

Hi Experts!

Im using http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/IDEADEV/Getting+Started+with+Plugin+Development to start developing my very first plugin for IDEA. But its completely out of date for IDEA 12.
The menus sometimes don't exist and the narratives don't follow reality.

Any suggestions for how to get started?  and i cant see any plugin.xml even.

Please help me out

Indeed, this guide needs some updating.

Please try following the webinar http://blogs.jetbrains.com/idea/2012/12/webinar-recording-live-coding-a-plugin-from-scratch/ which AFAIK is more up-to-date. Feel free to ask any questions if you get stuck.

I don't see any information in this document which would be significantly out of date. If you don't see the menus mentioned in the document, most likely it's because you don't have the Plugin DevKit plugin enabled. You can enable it in Settings | Plugins.
