Code Name Game

Hello everyone,

Looks like it's time to pick the codename for the 6.5 release. We haven't
yet made an official choice, so, unlike last time, we'll give you a chance
to suggest something that we may actually use. :)

Suggestions?

Hi Dmitry - any ground rules for the naming suggestions?

Hello Jon,

JS> Hi Dmitry - any ground rules for the naming suggestions?

Same vein as previous codenames. Female mythological creatures, preferably
Greek/Roman.

Hello Michal,

MS> Minerva

We've had Pallada already - we'd rather not reuse goddesses :)

I nominate Ainia. A warrior with a name that means "swiftness" would have to be a good omen.

AND it's a palindrome!

Then Egeria, or Concordia...

I think Athena would be perfect.

I still consider Hanuman the good code name (Hani might also like it=). Alas, we are bound to Greek/Roman names...

As part of a pitch for functionality I would like to see, I nominate Juturna]]>, roman goddess of springs.

Does it have to be a good girl? How about Chimaera or Medea or Pandora. If
you do npt like these names may be Calypso?

Pandora has already been used, IIRC, for the 1.5 release.

A few come to my mind, in order of preference (I'm in E mood)

1. Euterpe, "The Giver of Pleasures", muse of the music.
2. Erinye (aka Fury). Erineyes are defenders of the rightness of things, enforcers of just balance.
2. Eirene (or Irene), goddess of peace.

And if we're bold, we still haven't used any of the primordial goddesses: Gaea (Earth), Hemera (Day) or Nyx (Night).

i'd suggest "saturn" aka "kronos". it's the sixth planet in out solar system and it's version six (.5, but still six). also, kronos was the ruler of the world and brought the golden age. ask wikipedia.

Yeah, muses are cool. Alternatively, I would suggest Terpsichore,
the muse of dance.

How about 'Aphrodite'?

To be honest, I'm less concerned with the name, than what you are actually going to put in the 6.5 release.

Hopefully; nothing new.

The Amazons are a promising source of strong names that meet the criteria - http://www.paleothea.com/Amazons.html - though I might prefer Thalestris as the "best of the best".

Athena is a great name, if not already used internally at JetBrains in the days of yore.

Although it does bring to mind MIT's amazing Project Athena.

Except Maven, Spring, TestNG and Jetty support.

And completion inside of {@code} tags.

(I missed seeing the thread where you asked for suggestions for 6.5.)

Most likely no, yes, maybe, and no.

I assume the Spring support will come from bundling IdeaSpring?

No, we're building our own Spring plugin.

Having used IdeaSpring 'with pleasure', I'm a bit surprised.
What set of features are you targeting? Will it do everything that IdeaSpring
currently does?

Ah, thanks for setting expectations, then.

The Maven Reloaded and Maven Integration 2 3rd-party plugins do help a lot. The only bit missing for me is calling out to 'maven compile' when building and 'maven test' when running tests.

A shame about Jetty, which is a nice solution for an embedded container, but you have only so many iterations until delivery and so it goes.

Finally i suppose that 6.5 must be performance improvements as first. If so, the best name is Galatea.

Would you please elaborate on SpringFramework support ?

Thank you.
