SHA-1 for 8.1.4

Which SHA-1 is the best to checkout and use as source for IntelliJ IDEA 8.1.4 plugin SDK? Unfortunately there are no tags for pre-9 versions.

Hello Björn,

I don't think there would be a good match. First, the source code was very
significantly rearranged when preparing the open-source release, and second,
8.1.4 (like all released versions) was released from a branch, and we converted
only the trunk when importing old history into Git.

Which SHA-1 is the best to checkout and use as source for IntelliJ
IDEA 8.1.4 plugin SDK? Unfortunately there are no tags for pre-9
versions.

Hm, good point.
Too bad. :-(
Developing for IntelliJ IDEA is a PITA and especially without the source.
Or is there some decent documentation I've missed up to now?
And btw. you don't have statistics about what versions are used out there to evaluate for which version the effort is worth to support them with a plugin, do you?

All the docs that we have are at http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/IDEADEV/PluginDevelopment

And btw. you don't have statistics about what versions are used out
there to evaluate for which version the effort is worth to support
them with a plugin, do you?


We have logs from which such statistics can be extracted, but I don't have
any ready accesss to the numbers.

Ah, interesting to know.
May I ask where those logs come from?
Are this only download / sales logs, or actual usage logs?
I only remember to be asked by IntelliJ to send usage feedback back to Jetbrains in 10.5 and not before.
Do you think Jetbrains will provide such statistics, possibly regularly updated, in the future?

Hello Björn,

The logs come from the auto-update feature. They only include version numbers,
and the new opt-in usage statistics in 10.5 reports much more information
(VCSss, facets, module types, used plugins etc.)

I don't think we have any plans for publishing the statistics.

Ah, I see, I forgot about the update check.
But I doubt these logs would be much meaningful anyway.
As soon as the update check suggests to me a new major version I tend to deactivate the update check, either because I want to keep the version still around or because I don't have a new license key and don't want to be bugged by the update check results window.
Hm, sad, would have been very handy for plugin developers to know what versions are used out there.
