Gordon,

The DevKit plugin was mistakenly left out of the initial Community Edition release build. We'll add it back and release a fixed build today.

I'm also following the instructions from "Check Out & Build Community Edition" but there's no tools.jar in the distribution, even after building it on the command line. Is this the same problem?

Cheers,
Colin

No, this is a problem of unclear instructions. The lib\tools.jar is under your JDK installation, not part of the IntelliJ source.

Ah, ok. What should this be on the Mac? OSX has a different JDK layout and doesn't contain tools.jar.

On Mac OS X the classes from tools.jar are incorporated into the main JRE runtime. It will always be available and you don't need to configure it separately.

Oh good. I'm not losing my mind.

Looking forward to the new release. I've been wanting to use 9 and port my custom language plugin for a while.
