DP5 of JDK 1.4.1 for OSX has idea performing much better. For one thing, it runs out of the box unmodified. I realise that many of the bugs are issues with the JDK itself, however, it really would be nice if the intellij folks could at least give us any kind of status update. At the time we were told that 3.0 will be backported, that doesn't look like it's happening. So I assume the goal will be to get it to work with 1.4.1 on OSX. Now, my question is, will this happen after 1.4.1 final is released, or would you guys prefer it if we provided feedback and filed bugs against the DP's? Some of the bugs I'm positive will be due to IDEA code, and not the JDK's fault. Some examples:
- idea.sh should set popup weight to medium if it detects darwin
- apple/meta key no longer works, I suspect IDEA can do something to fix this
- hitting enter in the ctrl-N popup doesn't select the selected class and dismiss the popup, clicking on it does though.
There are a bunch of other issues, and I'd like to know if I should file them or not.
Looking forward to an official response,
