What causes 9xx builds to be such unstable?

Comparing to 896, 9xx builds seem to be very unstable. Especially, last
build, 944
has dozens of bug request already submitted in tracker.

What causes such instability? Big architectural changes in the meantime
(like these at the beginning of Aurora EAP)? Or maybe
internal use of generics?

The one of reasons is build 944 has an automatic error reporting tool :)

Yes, Stanislaw, I agree, but overall stability in 9xx is poor compared to
896.
On my computer, 944 does not complete Java in JSP, indent setting are lost,
even
if saved, and many other things go wrong, even the most fundamental.

Maybe it's time to stop adding features and stabilize code for release 4.0?

well something is going on. There hasn't been a bug fix in a couple of days. Maybe they are working on a big feature, maybe they are getting really close to 4.0, maybe there is a russian holiday?

It must be Eugene B.'s fault, since he's in charge. Let's recall him and
elect Mel Gibson to replace him! He'll "clean house" and get rid of all
the bugs, and he won't listen to "special interests" like the AspectJ
lobby or the UUIDWWAATTHTWTW (that' the Union of User Interface
Developers Who Want An Automated Tool To Help Them With Their Work).

since currently IDEA 944 does not update externally changed
files for me, and cannot evaluate expressions while debugging, I'm using IDEA 3.02 again. I don't use 3.05 just because there used to be problems with jad plugin, if I remember right...

Still, I do not really want to complain (although it used
to be SO MUCH FUN to always use the newest EAP in the
ariadna days... sigh ;-)...

Because, most possibly Jetbrains are doing just the
right thing: really big restructurings,
maybe even complete new-implementing of key parts,
which gets required at some point.

Before major improvement you get crisis ;)

Maybe the EAPs for 5.0 will be much more stable again,
meaning that all basic features will work, and won't
stop working as new features come in ...

One thing is for sure: internal use of generics have nothing to do with it
(well, in a way it has - cf. recent problems with idea.jar - but this
concerns mainly plugin writers)

I say bring back the Fabrique people!

I agree though that the UUIDWWAATTHTWTW is involved in a plot though. I never trusted those people, with their jbuilder stories and big talk of pretty pictures.
