Intellij WSL2 feature roadmap

Answered

First off, fantastic work on the new WSL2 integration in the latest beta -

I'm assuming the features being added will allow Intellij running on windows to interact with a WSL2 installation in a number of ways:

  • Editing sourcecode checked out on Git (already implemented)
  • Executing maven / gradle on WSL2 installations
  • Running / Debugging Java processes (e.g. Spring Boot applications) within the WSL2 installation
  • Integrating the [services] docker plugin to connect to the docker host within the WSL2 installation, allowing running commands / operations on containers, viewing logs etc

Is this somewhat close to the WSL roadmap for this EAP?  This would finally allow me to retire virtualbox / vmware for Java development in windows!
