8.0 Released!

I just wanted to say congratulations to the entire IDEA JetBrains team. This
has been one of the most enjoyable EAPs I can remember. I have to say I'm
absolutely loving the increased productivity gains from 8.0.

I've already convinced 5 of my friends to buy the upgrade :)

Good work!!!! I cannot wait to see what the future holds with IDEA 9.0

Now go download people!

Hello,
I am new in this forum. I just downloaded EAP 8.0. Where can I post issues or bugs which I encounter?

Thanks,
Kagan

Hello,

First of all, get the release version. You can evaluate if free for 30 days.

Secondly, IDEA has no bugs.

Thirdly, those bugs you think you found are just features.

Anything remaining should be discussed in an appropriate forum and reported formally at the JetBrains IDEA JIRA: http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/secure/Dashboard.jspa[/url].

I don't think it hurts to come to the forums first with issues (the JIRA is just too tedious and tiresome) and if it turns out what you've encountered is a bug, someone will end up asking you to file a JIRA, at which point that is what you should do.

Thanks for reply.
Here is the case (maybe bug or not)
I use build 9013 with Jindent plugin. In settings window, when I click on Jindent to change its options, Intellij Idea's settings disappears. When I click to Intellij's settings icon in editor window, Jindent's settings comes always.

Otherwise Jetbrains would not have released it, isn't it?

I can't for the life of me imagine why they would.

I second that! No bugs in IntelliJ, and certainly not in 8.0.0.0!

If this is only happening with the Jindnet settings, then it sounds like it is a problem with that plug-in. That plug-in is not developed by JetBrains (the developers of IDEA). So I'd recommend contacting the developers of that plug-in. Looking at their web page, it looks like you can submit bugs to them via the e-mail address: bugs@jindent.com.

JetBrains redesigned the settings window in IDEA 8; and that only happened recently, towards the very end of version 8's development. So the Jindent plug-in may be conflicting with those changes. If it's an actual problem in IDEA, the plug-in developers can open a bug report on it.

Hi, guys,
thanks for the best IDE I've ever seen

Could you please explain to me this new feature

class EnumLikeClass{
EnumLikeClass Instance1 = new EnumLikeClass()
EnumLikeClass Instance2 = new EnumLikeClass()
}

some method...
EnumLikeClass myInstance = <- here we hit CtrlShiftSpace

In IDEA7 we got the choice (Instance1, Instance2)
In IDEA8 we got no choice

Is there any setting that can adjust it somehow?
Thanks in advance!

I'm personally disappointed that IntelliJ 8 still doesn't support multiple Maven/standard J2ee projects like all other major IDEs. Modules are not a replacement for projects, especially when working with Maven. Maven projects can only be imported as projects and not modules. I used IntelliJ 6.0 a little bit, so I thought this problem would be fixed.

Is Jet Brains considering adding support for multiple projects without having to open multiple frames? Having multiple frames open is not an option/solution.
The next problem with IntelliJ 8 is its HTML/XML parser, which seems to be inferior to one in Netbeans 6.5 in regard to what syntax highlighting can be configured. I use also Netbeans from time to time, and migrated syntax highlighting into IntelliJ.

Hopefully better syntax highlighting & multiple projects can be supported in next release.

yaro, although this is not 100% solution, having a pom for your "workspace" (aka IDEA project) using pom packaging , that declares the modules you want as submodules allows haing them all int he same IDEA frame

Hello yaro,

I'm personally disappointed that IntelliJ 8 still doesn't support
multiple Maven/standard J2ee projects like all other major IDEs.
Modules are not a replacement for projects, especially when working
with Maven. Maven projects can only be imported as projects and not
modules. I used IntelliJ 6.0 a little bit, so I thought this problem

By definition, a project in IntelliJ IDEA is something that is open in one
frame. This is not going to change.

And as far as I understand, Maven projects can be imported as modules. There's
an option for that in "File | New Module..." dialog.

The next problem with IntelliJ 8 is its HTML/XML parser, which seems
to be inferior to one in Netbeans 6.5 in regard to what syntax
highlighting can be configured. I use also Netbeans from time to time,
and migrated syntax highlighting into IntelliJ.


Please describe exactly what syntax highlighting options you're missing in
IntelliJ IDEA. It should be easy to add them.

Are you sure you want
EumLikeClass myInstance = new EnumLikeClass.Instance1
?
This just won't compile
