If I open a large project (~10k files) for the first time it can take about 5 minutes for IDEA to parse the files.
Admittedly, once they have been parsed the project opens very quickly.
However, if I only want to check a file or maybe use the compare functionality in IDEA I don't need the files to be fully parsed and have all the functionality of IDEA to do this.
Would it be possible to have the option to put the loading of the project in the background, with the caveat that a lot of the functionality wont be available until the files have completed parsing?
Another reason for this is if I have opened a project in a new frame, I am prevented from working on my original project until the second one is fully opened.
