Is anybody else having problems with IntelliJ 9 on the Mac?
I'm currently using it on an MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard.
It appears that a number of background tasks just seem t hang there and cause the rest of the IDE to become unresponsive after a while, not to mention sending the CPU to 100% usage and therefore making the rest of the machine sluggish.
After installing IntelliJ Beta 9 today I have already had to kill it 10 times and have submitted about another 10 crash reports.
Some of the background tasks I have noticed
1. CVS synching tasks seem to hang in the background and do not die or report errors.
2. Refreshing ANT tasks never seems to start.
3. Indexing on a reasonably small project (~100 Java files) and standard number of dependency jars (log4j, dom4j, mysql driver etc) takes a long time and eventually becomes unresponsive.
I was recently asked to submit my views on IntelliJ 9 as a possible Java IDE for a company I consult to. Based on todays experience I couldn't recommend it (unless it becomes a lot more stable between now and the official release). Its a real shame, I have used versions 7 & * in the past with relatively few problems. This beta version doesn't seem to be that stable at all (certainly not on the mac anyway).
