Tiger Aboard

Tiger (JDK 1.5) second beta has been released today, and the good news is that I'm running Pallada using all day, and everything seems to be working fine by now (except for debugging: I can't use remote debug, not sure about in-process debug).

Take a look at the two attached screenshots just too see the kind of improvement 1.5 got font handling :)

Ah yes: "TelaCaputurada-2.png" is Pallada under 1.4.2_03 and "TelaCapturada-3.png" is Pallada under 1.5.0-beta2

Any performance differences you can observe?

Under 1.5, IDEA seems to use less memory, but performs garbage collection
more frequently (using the same flags I used with 1.4.2). Other than that,
no noticeable performance differences.

Try to do refactor extract interface - it will blow with an exception there
are other places where the same exception occurs :)

You mean how ugly it can be made. If it wasn't for those blocky fonts....

Considering that 90% of the screen is just IDEA (purposefully using a weird dark color scheme just to show the font rendering improvement), you must really hate something about the top or bottom bars ;)

Putting Hani's bile aside, the real bad part about this screenshot is not linux itself -- but how IDEA feels out of place there.

Hani is an OSX bitch, so he's used to a great Swing implementation sporting a great native look and feel -- those of us without the dough for a Mac has to suffer and doesn't get that, and don't even get started about that Windows LAF joke.

While IDEA L&F is a great improvement on the original Metal LAF (now Metal is a really bad joke), it's still far from being as good the OSX look and feel, or more important, far from being able to blend well in the user desktop.

Unfortunately, this issue is out of scope for the JetBrains guys. I think it's a Sun job to get a better swing integration on all platforms. There's just one little bit JetBrains could do for us, and it's #30032[/url], vote for it ;)

You should try removing all GC flags. For 1.5, Sun said that the great majority of users don't need to tweak GC; the JVM will figure out the best collection scheme on its own.

Now that I think about it, that might've been about heap size, not GC. I'll try to find where I read it originally.

Support for Web-apps is not working when running under 1.5.0-beta2. When opening project settings and selecting "Paths (1)" button, NPE exception occurs, saying something about J2EE modules. I wanted to submit bug-report on this, but unfortunately, as far as I know, bug-repots are not accepted for non-supported JRE's.

Font antialiasing is better, indeed, on Windows too.

Yes, I don't want to start any trouble to JetBrainers -- please don't
submit any error report when running under 1.5.

By the way, "Paths" seems to be working for me. But I'm not using 1.5 all
the time -- I can't debug with 1.5, so when I need to debug I switch to
1.4.2 again (and I've been doing lots of debugging lately).

  • whispering */ I made binary patch (jar) for myself (well, you may call it hack, or crack, or anyhow), what fixes two errors when running under Tiger 1.5.beta2. Errors concerns Swing JTable behavior in 1.5 (when you set table model for table, it asked immediately even if table itself is not yet visible). The first error I mentioned in previous post, second is in 'Move method' refactoring.

{Hmmm.}, I might be interested in that. Any chance that you would mail me
that? JetBrains could also use this information for the next build ;)

The main drawback is what due to obfuscation, patch must be remade every (almost) new build.
