Hi I would like to make a few observations, that perhaps you can comment on.
I was running 657 (prio to 3.* release) and life was good, except it had one problem it occasionally ran out of memory and hung. That problem prompted me to go for an upgrade.... I went to 3.0.5 and found that this version had a sever memory leak, I could only run my project for about 10 minutes before having to reboot. I update mx to 250mb but it rapidly reached that point. Now I am on the EAP's (915) and finding that there are a lot of little things that are frustratingly different.
1) the caching of files seems to get more confused - I have two projects open and one will update (create new files) the other. I close out the #2 project, run #1 and then open #2 (all with the same IntelliJ session) and #2 files are the same as I left them in the editor (the disk version is new, but the cached editor doc is out of date). It is not checked upon rebuild, and I get errors ..etc.
2) memory usage (memory leak) still seems to be around although not as bad as 3.0.5.
3) From my prior posting "Instant feedback on syntax for #915" - the syntax checker is slow and doesn't work very accurately. This is by far the biggest problem for me. Since I relied on the syntax checker for increased productivity.
Any comments? When will the next version be out? By posting this message am I getting to the developers of IntelliJ???
By the way, I love the product, I just don't want to see it slipping away into bug-dome. (I guess there has always been one grievance - I don't like the auto file synchronization - it is a pain-in-the butt!! - I want to save my files when and where I'd like to save them, also I'd like to be able to do a "save as")... Thanks for listening.
