Java 7 support slated for JetBrains IDE
- 24 February, 2011 03:46
JetBrains this spring will offer full support for Java 7 in an upgrade to the company's IntelliJ Idea IDE, according to the JetBrains IntelliJ Idea blog. IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 will support language features of Java 7 across the IDE with capabilities such as code completion, code inspections, and quickfixes.
Java Platform, Standard Edition 7 or Java 7, was submitted along with Java SE 8 to the Java Community Process in November, with both later given initial approvals. The final Java 7 specification is due this year. Java 7 has been set to add improvements for multi-core processors, dynamic scripting languages and I/O-intensive operations. (There also has been some early deliberations on an enterprise version of Java 7 to complement the standard edition.)

"Besides [Java 7 capabilities], we're working on a number of new features and incremental improvements in all areas of the product," offering capabilities such as bundled integration with the Jetty HTTP server and support for XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations) 2 , the blog says.
An early access program for IntelliJ Idea 10.5 will start in a few weeks. Also featured in the IDE are bug fixes and enhancements for usability and performance. "In particular, in this release we've focused on improving startup performance, so you can expect the new version of IntelliJ Idea to open and load your projects faster," according to the blog.
Version 10.5 will be offered as a free upgrade to users of IntelliJ Idea 10, which was released in December.
