Is Kotlin already used for IntelliJ IDEA development?

I see that you still stick to Java bytecode v6 in IntelliJ IDEA, just like Kotlin compiler emits Java bytecode v6. Is Kotlin already used to develop IntelliJ IDEA resp. do you plan to use it for further development of IntelliJ IDEA anytime soon?

Hello Alexander,

currently Kotlin is used in tests and some non-bundled plugins, so you still can compile IDEA sources without having Kotlin plugin installed. But we
plan to use Kotlin more widely in the nearest future.
