Overall quality issues with post-2019.3.5 versions

已回答

Hi Folks,

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 :-/

I'm curious:

  • 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.

Thank you.

Thank you Matthew, we really appreciate your feedback.

In David's comment I see one described issue about IDE not finding the `String`:

>An update should not result in the IDE not finding String.

It sounds similar to this SO post: https://stackoverflow.com/a/61180376/2000323 Looks like it was experienced by several users. One of the possible causes for this is that IDE was not able to index the JDK jars correctly. Re-adding the JDK or clearing IDE system cache should help in such a case.

On MacOS there was a performance issue with antialiased fonts rendering: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-238301 (you could see this comment for more info). The latest versions of IDE use Greyscale rendering on Mac which fixes this performance issue and we are trying to improve it so it look as native rendering.

Unfortunately the David's comment was not immediately answered by us and no other specific problems were named to act upon. The best way to address it and understand the situation is to describe specific problems. It would be great if you could name specific issues with the product. Do you experience the same issues you have quoted in the latest 2020.1 versions?

Our development process has not changed in any significant way and we always improve it including the quality assurance. Thank you.
