GWT compilation detailed log

Hi guys,
I am trying to set a project on Intellij IDEA and see that in opposite to my eclipse-turned colleagues I can only observe one-line log strings during GWT compilation.
Smth like "Compiling permutation 0" or "Copying files..."

At the same time in Eclipse there is a total compilation time printed at the end and some warnings shown which I can't see in Idea.
Is it possible to substitute that small window with short compilation info to a full-size bottom tab with detailed info ?
Or maybe at least there is a log file on the file system somewhere?

There is a feature request to add option to see the log in IDEA (
