not my words, but I think he has a point...

Several points, actually, and not a single one very flattering for him.

What about IDEA's expanded CVS interface, what about the debugger's new ability to pop the call stack? One can argue these are minor novelties, but so are the things he mentioned about CodeGuide.

And I completely agree with Robert's comment to this 'rant' :)

pop the call stack??

What does that mean?

When debugging you can point particular stackframe in a Thread's stack and make it current. In other words, you can re-run execution
from that point. However all changes to fields etc, made by the previous execution, will remain.

I third that motion. Every single person I have been able to convince to
try IntelliJ loves it. I may even have another couple of developers here
ready to skip the upgrade to JB X and switch to 4.0 instead.

I dont think anyone (including Hani) is saying that IntelliJ is no longer a good ide - its just that (in a few peoples' opinion) they have lost focus on what is important. They have weakened on the principles that made them great. Simplicity. Intuitive. Unintrusive.

Will I move to - or recommend - another IDE? Unlikely. I love it.

Am I dissapointed with this release. Some things dissapoint me. But we (I) have come to expect a lot :)

FWIW, my 2c on the matter http://nickminutello.blog-city.com/read/435136.htm
