New IDEA Error Mechanism

Thanks for the new mechanism when IDEA has an error. The flashing exclamation point is much nicer than the pop ups and allows me to keep working. It looks like you've got a lot on your plate, so really I appreciate you taking the time to add these details.

Thanks,

-Chris

Though I think it would be much nicer to not keep working immediately, but take the time to report the exception.
After all user feedback is an important asset for JetBrains.

But yeah, at least no more infinite loops of exception popups that force me to restart Idea.

The problem I find with the new mechanism is that if I'm typing rapidly and thinking about what I'm doing, often I don't notice the error immediately, and sometimes till more have accumulated. Then I'm not sure exactly what I was doing that provoked the error. But that's more a problem for JetBrains than for me, I like it!

I personally like that I can go back and just submit them all one by one
when I'm done working. Keeps the flow going, keeps the IDE working, and
unless I start seeing that message with the red arrow alot, then I stop
to see what the heck is going on.

I'm sure jetbrains can figure out what's wrong without a little blurb
about what you were doing.

If I think a bug hasn't been reported yet, I report it. But when I code tapestry html pages and I get an error every other minute I'm really happy with the new error handling.
