I've tried all the upgrades from 2019.3.5, but each time I've encountered issues that force me to downgrade. This is a first for IDEA, in which I'm usually excited and pleased with upgrades. The post by David Hilton at IntelliJ IDEA 2020.1.2 is Available! sums up the experience we've been having. Please read them (I won't paste the whole comment here because I don't have permission) but here's an apt one:
> At the moment the only way I can work is to have 2019.3.5 as my stable IDE then occasionally I take a leap of faith and use the latest, then regret it.
This comment is also troubling:
> It’s extremely slow after upgrade to 2020.1.2. I’m on Mac OS.
I realize the best way to help you solve the problems is to create and track issues, which you are good at responding to, but it's hard to justify the time when work is busy. I hate being stuck at 2019 :-/
- Are any other users seeing an overall quality degradation in upgrades?
- Has something changed in your development process or management?
As I've said before, I've been a proud IDEA users for many, many years, and I spread it in each organization I work in, so I don't want to sound ungrateful at all; I'm a fan. And until now the subscription fee has been a no-brainer.
