Hey! The parser in 818 now supports Generics!


And I only figured it out while tracking down why no longer supported the ">>=" operator. When were you guys planning on telling us?

On the other hand, Sun just released a preview version of javac including some of the Tiger (1.5) goodies...

I guess it's still too early for this but if IDEA could somehow support this (building on the support for generics), that would be really, REALLY cool! :)

Best,
Chris

And AspectJ syntax/advice highlighting as well. I wonder why they haven't
opened it up yet (I haven't figured out if/how I can compile/weave using
IDEA)...

Unfortunately there are still a handful of problems with it that prevent
even us from using Generics internally. But those will be fixed quite soon -
next build most likely.

As for JSR-201, we are rather reluctant in implementing support for them in
Aurora, as full-blown JDK 1.5 will come out later than Aurora.

Cheers,
Dmitry

In that case, do you plan a version 4.1 (or whatever) which will contain
full JDK 1.5 support?

I understand if you don't want to keep adding more and more new language
features in Aurora -- I suspect aspects and generics require quite
enough changes to IDEA as it is, and at some point you have to say "no
more" and concentrate on polishing the new features you already have and
getting a new version ready to be released.

On the other hand I don't think it would be a good idea to delay support
for the new JDK 1.5 features until a new major version (IDEA 5, or
something), since that would most likely come out much later than JDK
1.5. Not that I know anything about your internal schedules, of course,
but given that IDEA 2.0 was released in July 2001, IDEA 3.0 was released
in November 2002, and you have quite a few things to finish in IDEA 4.0,
it seems like major versions generally take around a year or more to
finish.

I also notice a New->Form File under the Class, in 816 this opened a new
buffer with some XML, but 818 just doesn't do anything....

Yeah, noticed that as well. It looks like we have another open season for
the easter eggs hunting. :)

Who said Aurora is a new major version??? ;o)

I asked this question some time ago and I got the answer that Aurora would probably be 3.5.

Of course, that was long ago and plans may have changed.

I don't remember if anyone said this. Maybe I just assumed it would be,
because of all the major new features (GUI builder, AspectJ integration,
generics) and the timeframe. If this isn't enough reason for a new
major version then I really want to see what's going to be in 4.0 :)
