FreeMarker Support in Intellij IDEA 9.0 BETA Community Edition

I've decided on testing Intellij IDEA 9.0 BETA Community Edition for my project. One of the things that really compelled me was the prospect of native FreeMarker support in the editor. That has always been a hassle with Eclipse (essentially a "dumb" text editor).

However, I can't seem to figure out how to use the feature (if it exists). When opening a *.ftl file, IDEA pops up and asks me which editor to associate the filetype *.ftl with. There's exactly 23 different editors/views to choose from, none of which is a FreeMarker editor though.

So: where is the FreeMarker editor hidden? or: does it not exist for the Community Edition of IDEA?

Hello Thomas,

FreeMarker is only supported in IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.

I've decided on testing Intellij IDEA 9.0 BETA Community Edition for
my project. One of the things that really compelled me was the
prospect of native FreeMarker support in the editor. That has always
been a hassle with Eclipse (essentially a "dumb" text editor).

However, I can't seem to figure out how to use the feature (if it
exists). When opening a *.ftl file, IDEA pops up and asks me which
editor to associate the filetype *.ftl with. There's exactly 23
different editors/views to choose from, none of which is a FreeMarker
editor though.

So: where is the FreeMarker editor hidden? or: does it not exist for
the Community Edition of IDEA?
