OK, so no update in background for this release?

Hi there,

This has to be one of the most annoying things I experience with IDEA on
a day-to-day basis, waiting minutes in front of a modal dialog that just
displays a meaningless progress bar/byte count (yeah, I know I can read my
mail or browse the net, but still...). I remember the background update was
planned for Irida, but by the way it looks we'll have to wait another year
or so till we can start hoping again.

Unless... :)

Best,
Andrei

I'm hoping that the next release deals with all of those annoying times when IDEA fails to
repaint the GUI in a timely manner because something is happening in the "background".
There are definitely some threading issues that should be worked out.

Indeed we can't do it now due to threading architecture limitations, which
is going to be redesigned in next major version.
