Weekly progress news (21 of June - 07 of July, 2003)

This is a short progress report of what was going on in the development team
approx. last 2 weeks.

0. We have been working on making a build to be published into EAP but due
to lot of internal changes we failed to produce it yet. We hope to release
it today or tomorrow.

1. Debugger. We have started work on HotSwap and plan to open this
functionality into EAP in approx. a week.

2. Generics support. We have a good progress with generics support and
already use them ourself in IDEA's code (however, lot of stuff still does
not work). We also continue to work on a feature which converts code from
use of untyped collections to typed ones.

3. Diff tool. We implemented lot of improvements for our diff tool and
feedback is welcome when the next build will be released. We also started
work on ability to edit the current version of file when it is shown in the
diff.

4. "Semi-open" API for code inspections has been developed and will be
available in the next build. One will be able to contribute inspections with
quickfixes that will be available from both "Inspect Code" and "on the fly"
in the editor.

5. CVS integration. We were working "Reserved Edit" option, branches
support, "Annotate" command and correct support of multiple CVS roots.

6. GUI builder. We were working on easier dragging of inner components and
on adding/removing components into/from the grid without need to break it.

There's two ways to parse this, one saying that the quickfixes will be available "on the fly" and one saying that they won't. Is this saying that LocalQuickFixes will be automatically exposed as intentions? If so, that would be intensely cool, although it will complicate and invalidate some of the design of both IntentionPowerPack and InspectionGadgets (116 inspections, and counting).

intentions?

Yes, this is true.

What about the new package view and multi-module support? Are those
still expected soon, or are they being put off while other things are in
progress? Just curious. Multi-module support matters a lot less to me
now than it did a few weeks ago, but I'd still like to play with the new
package view.



Thanks.

Mike,

Multi-module support is our next-to-the-top priority after initial generics
(JSR014) support. Well, "initial" is a stretchable word, but we think that
what we deliver in upcoming 853 does qualify. This is bow the things are at
the moment.

Friendly,
Dmitry

This, and the last 2 weeks, reminds me furiously of Tony Blair and G.W.B. :
(about WMD )

"I'm confident we will eventually find them"

Shall we build our French-Russian relations along the lines sketched during
last week by our German and Italian friends?

I'm Belgian Dmitry. That's not a good start.

I have a Berlusconi's quote ready-to-fire, but I'll keep it to myself,
for inter-european peace's sake :)

PS: don't write you ':)' in white ink. I almost missed it.

(As this is completely OT, let's go on)

No, othing much, along the lines of


Me (privatedly):
"I'm sorry my words were misunderstood"


Dmitry (publicly):
"I accepted Alain's apologies; we can go on now"

Me (publicly):
"I never apologized. I merely said ...
"I'm sorry my words were misunderstood"
"Actually, I'm the one who should receive apologies."


And after a few weeks of loud-speaking, and spinning, all is forgotten,
and it's business as usual.

Especially for Berlusconi :

"Monday : change law XXX, to get more power/make more profit
(not yet sure which one. In case of doubt, choose 'both' )"

"Tuesday: change law YYY to protect from attacks about XXX"

And on Sundays, he rests, and smokes a cigar.

Alain

Ok, ok, sorry.
Walloonian-Russian :) (or is it Brusselian-Russian?)

Oops sorry, Alain, I forgot you are too politically obsessed for ':)' in
white ink. ;)

I'm REALLY hoping this comes soon... HUGE feature -- probably the most
important thing to affect productivity since refactoring :)
