Default/future-proof project format

Hi,

With the introduction of the directory-based project format, I was wondering which one should be preferred from a user perspective: directory-based or file-based? The user guide doesn't say anything about it. Additionally, I'd like to know if the file-based format is considered deprecated/superceded. Is the file-based project format going to go away down the road? If yes, do you have a release in mind when this is going to happen?

Thanks,

Ben

We plan to drop the file based project format at some point, so it's considered legacy already.

There are some issues that have to be resolved until this format can be dropped, like this one: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-80673 .

Some our other products and tests depend on the old format as well, so it won't be easy/quick.
