Any news on Irida?

Hi JetBrainers,

excuse my impatience, but could you maybe give a (perhaps tentative) list of the features that are intended to go into Irida?

Also, if you have time, could you revive the weekly status update?

And, of course, why don't you just go ahead and start the Irida EAP ;)

Regards,
Jens

Generally all the features indended to be implemented in Irida should be
avaliable via tracker request "Planned for version=Irida".
In a few words those include
- Enhanced J2EE support including jsp refactoring&reformat, html with
css support, basing javascript support.
- Perforce & Subversion VCS integrations.
- Various OpenAPI enhancements including a brand new plugin system.
- J2ME support
- Many new refactorings

and as always many small yet powerful code editing and navigation features.

After the release and before next version EAP we usually do some massive
refactorings that may reduce the overall stability of the project. Hope
that would be done in 2-3 weeks and of course we'll start a new EAP
program then.

Maxim - are the lost focus & IDEA steals focus issues being worked on in this "massive refactorings" phase?

Thanks for the update, Maxim!
Any chance of adding http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=11430 to the list of Irida features? After all, it is among the top ten most voted for features. Plus, I believe it would be an ideal candidate for the "WOW!-factor" that IDEA is famous for.

- Perforce & Subversion VCS integrations.


Hello Maxim

It's really great to know that you are going to address our desperate need in p4 integration. It will be even more cool if you do it in a "PerforceDirect" plugin manner (i.e. p4 changelist always reflects the actual state of the sources). An ability to work with multiple changelists will also be a bonus.

Out of interest, are you planning to use the JNI-based wrapper for Subversion client libraries, or are you planning WebDAV/DeltaV access to Subversion ?

If you chose WebDAV/DeltaV, you'd not be restricted by the platform, and you'd also be able to integrate with other WebDAV filestores. However, you wouldn't be able to access Subversion repositories that use different protocols (native or over SSH).

If you chose the JNI-based approach, you can access all types of repository, but the JNI-based Java client library doesn't seem to be available for a lot of platforms and drags its heels behind main development.

And then there's the file:// protocol too...

IIRC, a 100% Java based subversion client is planned.
