Downloaded zip to XP and overlaid the previous version (1104). Seems to work fine... ...except that nothing happens when I try to run my suite of JUnit tests.

I'm looking into it now.

(Doubly frustrating because I'm trying to solve a timed Java coding problem from one of the practice rooms at Topcoder.)

Sorry, Can't get it to actually run any code. It may be my settings but I haven't changed anything from 1104, just overlaid the 1108 files. The editor seems to work OK though.

I might take another look tomorrow (except that it's Saturday).

(Fortunately, the Topcoder problem was simple enough to submit without first doing some JUnit tests. (luckily) it worked first time but - due to the delay - I only scored 177 out of 250.)

Starts up fine, but all my module dependencies were clobbered, oh well.

Don't you mean fubar?

The list of changes on the web site says nothing but:

  • Mac OS X distribution changed to internet enabled disk image

(.dmg) file. Unfortunately AKAMAI download server does not support .dmg
files yet so they get downloaded as text content if link is clicked. So
be careful and save link first.

  • Bugfixes.


Yet there are obviously many more than that - for instance the JDK set
up has changed in Project Settings.

It would be really helpful to all of us evaluating the product to give
us access to a full list of new features and bugfixes that got checked
in in a particular build.

Back to the point - looks OK so far. Good job!

Cheers,

Nick.

Nick,

If you go to the announcement for the particular version, you will find a link that returns a list of resolved issues from tracker. I usually use this link for determining whether I will download the build.

If Mac OS X is an officially supported platform, the Apple menu is still flaky decreasing it's Mac-iness, which is otherwise astonishingly good. I've been a loyal IDEA user on XP for a long time now, but am very pleased with the idea of using IDEA under OS X and Linux. If OS X can't be fully tested or is of lower priority, I think you all should be upfront about that in your supported platforms description.

OSX is officially supported, in that if you reports bugs about it, they will attempt to fix them, instead of just saying 'sorry, we don't care about OSX'. The idea folks have always been receptive to the OSX crowd (and it's a pretty significant crowd).

Of course, there are still issues, and it doesn't feel nearly as well tested as the windows version, but that's where us users come in and can make sure it gets there with our feedback.

That's good enough for me - now used to being part of the downtrodden. (Heck, after using DR-DOS, Desqview, OS/2, and BeOS, you think I would haven't learned by now.)

Justin, a lot of implemented design stuff which was never a bug in the
first place won't show up on that list. I think this is what Nick meant.

Hani,

Is that really you? Are we witnessing an identity theft here?

(Saturday morning.)
Opened up Idea. Ran a JUnit test: it worked (after flashing up a brief mesage about needing to recompile something). Ran another: no reaction. Ran other code: no reaction.

Closed Idea. Opened it. All JUnit tests and everything else seems to be working fine now. Initially there was again a brief message about recompiling something so maybe it was all down to a corrupt source code compilation on my machine?

Vince.

Ach, it's happened again. Idea was OK but just stopped running tests. Closing it and re-opening it cures the problem. The first code run after re-opening briefly displays the message "Previous compilation did not terminate properly..."

If anyone else reports it I'll raise it as a bug.

Vince.

No blessing, instable cvs and odd debugger behaviour

If by "overlaid" you mean you extracted the new version to the same
directory as your old version, may I suggest that you not do that. It
can have very unpredictable consequences if some files are renamed and
old files are left lying around.

I always extract into a new directory, copy plugins across and change my
links to point to the new directory.

Ciao,
Gordon

Ive been doing exactly that since the 900 builds and have never had a
problem. If I encounter issues, I'll check with a fresh install but Ive
not come across an instance where Ive not manage to replicate the
problem in the fresh install too.

Maybe Ive been extreemly lucky for 108 builds :P Use whatever works I say.
