I have been a die hard IDEA fan & for the last 6 years. I'm sorry to say that I've had the worst experience with IDEA 7.0.x out of all IDEA versions. What I liked about IDEA is that it makes it easy to do the simple things. In 7.0 i find several annoying issues like the UI not getting rendered properly, syntax errors not getting highlighted, tab colors not changing after the files are committed etc. I'm on Ubuntu 7.04. I switched back to IDEA 6.0.5.
IDEA 7 has introduced a whole lot of new features which I seldom use and at the same time has broken some of the features I frequently use. IMHO, IDEA is suffering from featuritis (http://headrush.typepad.com/creating_passionate_users/2005/06/featuritis_vs_t.html)
Has anyone else found IDEA 7 to be not up to the mark?
