Release 9013 on OS X is very problematic

I downloaded the official release of IntelliJ 8.0 (9013) and I can't run it on OS X. I am getting a lot of error messages about not having enough memory (the memory dialog appears). I keep bumping it up to finally 2048 Meg and it's still asking for more memory.

Has anyone run into this problem?

I am going to try downloading the release and do a fresh install to make sure I didn't get something messed up in that process.

Hello Randolph,

Please try to increase the PermGen size in info.plist, instead of increasing
the max memory value. (See http://support.jetbrains.com/kb/entry.jspa?externalID=197&categoryID=12
for instructions)

Dmitry,

Thanks for the reply.

What I did was purge the cache that IntelliJ uses (in the user's area) and that has fixed things. (I was also not getting dialogs to show, etc. It was a mess!).

I guess there was a lot of "cruft" left over from all of the interim releases I installed.

Thanks -- Randy

There is an open JIRA Ticket to add a hook in IntelliJ to purge the Cache: http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-17280

Maybe if there are enough votes, currently 19 !, this would be implemented for 8.X.
